Configuring JSON web services

You can configure JSON web services on CICS® Transaction Gateway to enable mobile applications to connect to CICS applications.

A JSON web service is defined by a WEBSERVICE section definition in the configuration file. It defines the URI for the web service, the name of the CICS server connection and the WSbind file to use when the web service is invoked.

In addition to a WEBSERVICE definition, CICS TG must be configured with an HTTP or HTTPS protocol handler to allow clients to connect to CICS TG to invoke the web service. For information on configuring an HTTP or HTTPS protocol handler, see HTTP protocol settings and HTTPS protocol settings.
