Exposing Mainframe Resources to Web and Desktop Applications

IBM has provided a few mechanisms to make mainframe resources available as Application Program Interfaces (APIs) to Web and desktop applications. These mechanisms include:

  • z/OS® Connect

  • Several mechanisms specifically within CICS to expose CICS transactions as Web Services

  • Support for CICS bundles

ChangeMan ZMF supports these mechanisms by enabling the resource artifacts to be staged into ZMF packages and processed through the ZMF package lifecycle.
