first of all, i am an application programmer and our system support has been outsourced to a data center and i am not getting any help from the data center. so i figure i should start asking questions myself.
we are an OS390 shop running CICS TS 1.3, we current have process that listen for a socket request coming in to a specific port, and which points to a specific CICS region, then execute a COBOL online program.
however, for this particular project we are needing make the COBOL online program to make an outbound call to a web service resides on our intranet.
would it be possible to make a outbound socket calls to the web service? all suggestion and recommendation is greatly appreciated!
