In March 2002, WebSphere Application Server V4.0.1 for z/OS introduced support for the J2EE Connector Architecture, and with this support comes a whole new way of connecting to enterprise systems like CICS and IMS.
This Redpaper shows how to use the J2EE Connector Architecture support to create a managed connection between WebSphere for z/OS and CICS Transaction Server, using the CICS ECI resource adapter. The entire process is covered in this paper, from developing an enterprise application that makes calls to CICS, through to deploying the enterprise application to WebSphere for z/OS.
This Redpaper describes detailed instructions on how to prepare IBM’s VisualAge for Java and the new WebSphere Studio configurations for use with the CICS ECI resource adapter, and then details how to build an enterprise application using these tools. This enterprise application is then deployed to a WebSphere J2EE server configured for the CICS ECI resource adapter.
