Using Web Service for Integrating Mainframe Applications

Since WebServices are a standardized way to invoke a method of another
application over the internet, is there a way to integrate two different
applications running on different platforms (Say a .NET client application,
used for implementing the presentation logic, and a mainframe application
that contains the business logic). Is there a way to call the .NET web
service from the mainframe application / expose the buiness logic in the
mainframe application as a Web Service .

Our company does exactly what you want.

We expose MF applications as web services, and provide a way to MF
applications to call external web services.

We provide at least three solutions:
1) MF based (you can read about it at http://www.multiconn.com);
2) .NET based, implemented as a thin layer between web services on IIS
and MF applications;
3) BizTalk Server 2004 based (you can read about it and try at
http://workspaces.gotdotnet.com/Mult...xtensibility);

Currently we are working on Java + WebSphere based solution (the same as 2).

For more details, please contact to yu***@multiconn .com

Hi,

You might also want to talk to your IBM rep. They have some great tools
for doing exactly this.

There are a few tools in the marketplace that will allow you to do this
successfully. I would suggest you take a look at the recent gartner analysis
and check out the vendors listed there from exposing mainframe transactions
as Web Services. I would also suggest looking for a solution that allows for
both publishing and consuming a web service. One of the vendors mentioned,
GT Software, will allow you to invoke a Web Service from the mainframe and
return the data to build what they call a Composite Mainframe Web Service.
Here is the link the the recent analysis report:

Howdy, I wrote a web service in .Net for my customer. My customer has another vendor who now has to consume it but they are not using Visual Studio. Most of their pages are jsp, and they said they need to consume this web service using HTTP. The developer's IDE is Notepad. Yeah, weird I know. How is this done? I guess if I can get it to run ASP, IDE independant, that should make them happy. Any references you can point me to?
