How to issue a HTTP command from JCL/Batch Step

Postby kmargam » Fri Aug 30, 2013 3:26 am

Need to invoke a HTTP GET command from one of the mainframe job/steps to inform a distributed java/web application of something.
Running z/OS v1.13.
What utility to run to perform this, and where can I find the information as to how to use the utility?

SAS would work for this.

I just wrote(mostly) a REXX that can do a SOAP call. It could also do a GET call.

Do you have the header and everything that would need to be sent?

It uses the SEZALOAD load library to open/send/read/close a socket and runs in batch.

Interested?
