Other REST Client APIs

Since Enterprise Server for .NET CICS REST web services use standard protocols, they can be invoked by clients using various framework and third-party APIs, with no Micro Focus libraries or licenses required on the client system (unless the client program is COBOL).

There are also third-party libraries for native-code applications. Microsoft Windows includes the WinINet and WinHTTP APIs. The open-source cURL library has been used with native-code COBOL programs to communicate with REST web services.

Note: Micro Focus does not endorse or support these third-party APIs. This topic is for information purposes only and does not imply these APIs are suitable for any purpose.
