Attachmate Verastream Transaction Integrator Guide

 

Using .NET

Microsoft .NET is a set of Microsoft software technologies for integrating software applications. In Transaction Integrator, .NET components are generated in Web Builder 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.

This .NET  interface
Does this
.NET Web service
  • Generates an installer to install .NET components in the .NET Framework.

  • Communicates with your client applications via SOAP.

.NET remotable client object
  • Creates configuration and DLL files to aid in developing your client application.

  • Uses .NET Remoting for client-server communication.

Typical .NET Solution

As shown in the following diagram, using CICS as a host type, 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.

Typical .NET solution



For help with alternative deployment scenarios, see the .NET Deployment Examples topic.

Workflow

  1. Generate .NET components in the designer.

  2. Deploy to a .NET run-time environment. (This process will vary, depending on whether you are deploying a Web service or a .NET remotable client object.)

  3. Configure your client environment. (This process will vary, depending on whether you are deploying a Web service or a .NET remotable client object.)

  4. Using Visual Studio, create your project and access your interface object.
