Implementing SOA on z/OS IBM-CICS

SOA provides an increasing number of options for accessing existing assets on z/OS. In a sense, the mainframe environment has always lent itself to the concept of SOA because it regards all its resources as providing services. Resources specifically designed for SOA capabilities are such components as the Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), process management engines (WPS), base Java™ 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE™), WebSphere Application Server, and databases.

To offer the power of System z™ for SOA, IBM has developed specific z/OS versions of its SOA product suite that is built on IBM WebSphere Application Server V6 for z/OS. The WebSphere Process Server and WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus are z/OS-enabled, as are supporting components such as IBM DB2® for z/OS V8. This offers a clean and contained architecture within a z/OS environment with the architecture based on open and interoperability standards.

CICS Transaction Server for z/OS V3.1 has added features to support SOA technologies such as Web Services and can integrate with the WebSphere Application Server for z/OS-based products.
