The Host Integrator Development Process

To build a Host Integrator application, use the following steps:

1. Build and deploy the model of a host application.

After planning your integration project, you build and deploy your model of the host application, identifying the data you want to make available to another application in your enterprise.

2. Build a new web or client/server application.

You have several options for this step:

3. Deploy the new application to the enterprise.

In a production environment, the deployed Host Integrator Servers provide dynamic load balancing and failover in transaction-intensive environments. Host Integrator supports all mainframe-based security packages and also has its own multi-level security, which can be tied to the security schema of the selected deployment platform (Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, UNIX, or Linux).
