IConnectorAccess Sample Application

This sample illustrates how to create a Java application that sends input to and receives output from your Synapta Services Builder for CICS task, using XML described by the metadata in your Task Builder-generated task file. The sample application and the files used to create and deploy it are all installed on your computer when you install a Synapta Services Builder for CICS component.

The sample Java class takes 3 inputs:

See the comments in the CICSICA.class file for more information. The cics_client.properties is where logging options are set. You'll need to edit the user ID and password in the in.xml file to get the task to run.
