    This IBM® Redpaper publication describes the steps involved in the installation, configuration and implementation of the new Optimized Local Adapters (OLA) support available with WebSphere® Application Server.

    A step-by-step approach is used to guide you through the OLA installation and configuration process.

    The OLA bi-directional communications functions are presented in detail through the development, deployment and execution phases using three sample application scenarios:

    - Modify the existing IBM benchmark application Trade6 to enable it to receive OLA inbound calls from an external application written in C.

    - A CICS® Cobol program modified to invoke an EJB™ within the WebSphere Application Server on z/OS® .

    - An EJB in the WebSphere Application Server on z/OS invoking a Cobol program in CICS.
