Microsoft .NET is a set of Microsoft software technologies for integrating software applications. In Synapta Services Builder, .NET components are generated in Task Builder for CICS and can be deployed to a .NET run-time environment as either Web services or remotable .NET objects.
A remotable object is one that can be controlled from a computer different from the one where it is deployed. Using this object, you can run tasks on computers where the CICSConnectorProxy Service and the Java Virtual Machine are not installed, and develop native client applications that do not require Java.

As shown in the following diagram, the native client uses remoting to communicate with the .NET object on the Web services computer; the Web services client communicates using SOAP. From the server, using COM, the .NET object communicates with the Attachmate CICSConnectorProxy service. Through JNI, the CICSConnectorProxy service calls into Java and then runs tasks using the IConnectorAccess interface.
For help with alternative deployment scenarios, see the .NET Deployment Examples topic.
