Generating a CICS Web Service Interface from a WSDL File

Starting with a WSDL file, you can generate a CICS Web Service service interface with default mappings to a skeleton CICS COBOL program. You can do this from an Visual COBOL project.

Attention: This feature is in Early Adopter Product (EAP) release status. We intend to provide the finalized feature in a future release. Please contact Micro Focus SupportLine if you require further clarification.

The CICS Web Services feature is EAP for development and testing usage. It should not be used for production deployment in this product release

Starting with an existing WSDL file, Visual COBOL can generate a skeleton CICS COBOL program and a CICS Web Service service interface file that you can view and edit in the Interface Mapper. Interface Mapper functionality for generated CICS Web Services is limited to creating new operations using default mappings, and deleting existing operations. The generated service interface files consist of the following, where by default, filename is the first eight characters of the file prefix of the WSDL file:

The CICS Commarea or CICS Channel service interface file
The skeleton CICS COBOL program

Visual COBOL adds these generated files to the current project in a new folder with the same name as the file prefix of the generated .svi file.
