The process of making legacy data and logic available for integration with your custom applications begins in the designer where host transactions, referencing COBOL programs on the host, are used to create client operations. Client operations, consisting of client schema, map the inputs and outputs from the host program, and identify which data items from the COBOL copybooks (specified in the host program data structure) to include in the input and output fields for the interface object.
Once you've created the client operation, the next step is to use Web Builder to build interface objects in the form of Java Task Beans and ICA Task Files, as well as legacy Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 Web service.
Finally, you'll want to configure the run-time environment to ensure that your applications can access the host.
