Update the CWSPROV Enterprise Server Region

Walks you through the steps required to update the CWSPROV enterprise server region to run the loanPaym Web service.

Configure the enterprise server region

This tutorial uses the CWSPROV enterprise server region created in Tutorial: CICS Web Service Provider from WSDL, Top-down Method to run the Web service provider.

Do one of the following:

  • If you did not complete Tutorial: CICS Web Service Provider from WSDL, Top-down Method:
    1. Open the Set Up the CWSPROV Enterprise Server Region topic.
    2. Complete the sections titled Create the CWSPROV enterprise server region and Configure CWSPROV resources. However, when selecting a project with which to associate the new region, check the LoanDemo project instead of the Reverse project.
    3. From this point, proceed directly to the Verify Resources section later in this topic.
  • If you did complete Tutorial: CICS Web Service Provider from WSDL, Top-down Method, then you created and configured CWSPROV in the process. In that case, perform the steps presented in this section before moving on to the Verify Resources section.
Update the dfhdrdat file
When you create an enterprise server region from the Server Explorer, it stores some configuration information in the project's system\dfhdrdat file. Therefore, to update the LoanDemo project with this information, you can copy the file from the Reverse project to the LoanDemo project:
  1. On the Application Explorer view, expand the Reverse project and locate the system\dfhdrdat file.
  2. Right-click dfhrdat; then select Copy.
  3. Expand the LoanDemo project and locate its system\dfhdrdat file.
  4. Right-click dfhrdat; then select Paste.
  5. Answer Yes to the prompt to overwrite the existing file.
Start the Server Explorer
The Server Explorer view is visible by default when using the Team Developer perspective, and appears as a tab on the same level as the Application Explorer view. However, if it is not visible:
  • In Eclipse, click Window > Show View > Other > Micro Focus > Server Explorer, and then click Open.
Associate the LoanDemo project
In previous tutorials, you have associated your project with an enterprise server region as part of the steps to create the region. Because the region you are using here was previously associated with the Reverse project, you need to change the association to the LoanDemo project.
  1. On the Server Explorer, right-click CWSPROV; then select Associate with project.
    Note: If a check mark shows next to Reverse, click Reverse to remove the association; then repeat this step and continue with step 2.
  2. Click LoanDemo to create an association.
  3. If you are prompted to restart the server, answer No.

Verify resources

After CWSPROV is started, you can verify that the resources you have defined are installed and active.

Start the CWSPROVenterprise server region
  • On the Server Explorer, right-click JSONPROV, and select Start from the context menu.
    Note: If an Enterprise Server Sign On prompt appears, click OK. The new enterprise server region does not use specific server credentials.
Start Enterprise Server Common Web Administration (ESCWA)
  • On the Server Explorer, right-click Default [] and then click Open Administration Page.

    The Region and Server List page in ESCWA is displayed in your default browser.

Access the CICS resource settings for the server
  1. After CWSPROV has started, select it from the default Directory Servers list in ESCWA.
  2. At the top of the right pane, click CICS > Resources.
View defined resources
  1. From the ESCWA UI, click the CWSPROV server in default list.
  2. From the CICS drop-down list in the right pane, select Resources.
  3. Set the first field to the right of RESOURCES to Active.
  4. On the resulting list of active resources, click WebSvc. You should see the loanPaym Web service listed and marked as INSERVICE.
  5. On the list, click Pipeline > PROVPIPE. You should see that the PROVPIPE pipeline is enabled.
  6. On the list, click URIMap > £map-ref, where map-ref is an alphanumeric string generated by Enterprise Server. You should see the path specified as /cics/services/loanPaym.

    Enterprise Server generates URIMAPs to provide CICS with the information it needs to process requests. The name of each generated URIMAP begins with a pounds-sterling symbol (£).

    To run your provider CICS Web service, you send a SOAP request to an endpoint URL that routes the request to your enterprise server region. The endpoint URL contains a URI value. The incoming request reads the installed URIMAPs to identify the map whose Path value matches the URI value of the endpoint URL. When the correct URIMAP is identified, CICS uses the data defined in the URIMAP, such as the name of the Web Service and its associated Pipeline, to process the request.

  7. Close ESCWA.
