WebSphere for z/OS V6 Connectivity Handbook

An IBM Redbooks publication


This IBM Redbooks publication (re)examines most connectivity scenarios between WebSphere Application Server for z/OS Version 6.01 and other application resources on z/OS and is an extension of and update on the WebSphere for z/OS V5 Connectivity Handbook, SG24-7064 .

This book covers various connectivity scenarios from architecture, application development, and infrastructure points of view. New scenarios are introduced using WebSphere Default messaging, Web services, and SQLJ. We also updated all scenarios with the usage of Rational Application Developer Version 6.

A brief summary of connectivity technology explained in this book is:
-Database access using JDBC and SQLJ
-JMS 1.1 and WebSphere Default messaging
-Calling DB2 Stored Procedures using SOAP
-Bi-directional Web services between WebSphere and CICS
-J2C connectors to CICS and IMS

The technology is explained using sample code, available as additional material for this book.
