ObjEx Program Call

Offer and Consume Web Services from IDMS

Using ObjEx Program Call for IDMS, Java and .NET programmers can invoke ADS Dialogs and DC-Cobol Programs from the network.  Conversely, ADS Dialogs, DC-Cobol, and batch programmers are able to call web services from the mainframe.  This product transforms data between XML and mainframe working storage as needed.
