Implementing CICS Web Services

The Web services support in CICS® Transaction Server Version 3.1 enables your CICS programs to be Web service providers and requesters. CICS supports a number of specifications including SOAP Version 1.1 and Version 1.2, Web services security (WS-Security) and Web services distributed transactions (WS-Atomic Transaction).

This IBM® Redbook describes how to configure CICS Web services support for HTTP-based and WebSphere® MQ-based solutions, and demonstrates how Web services can be used to integrate J2EE™ applications running in WebSphere Application Server with COBOL programs running in CICS.

It begins with an overview of Web services standards and the Web services support provided by CICS TS V3.1. Complete details for configuring CICS Web services using both HTTP and WebSphere MQ are provided next, along with the steps for using Web services to connect to CICS from a service integration bus.

This new version of the book includes a new chapter on basic cryptography concepts and new security scenarios based on the latest WS-Security support provided by CICS TS V3.1. It shows how CICS Web services can be secured using a combination of WS-Security and transport-level security mechanisms such as SSL/TLS.

Finally, it demonstrates how atomic Web services transactions can be configured to allow WebSphere and CICS resource updates to be synchronized.
