IMS Enterprise Suite 2.1 SOAP Gateway: Top-down application development with Rational Developer for System Z

Product documentation


This sample demonstrates the creation of a PL/I application template using the top-down application development approach for IMS™ Enterprise Suite 2.1 SOAP Gateway.



In the top-down approach, the PL/I application template is automatically generated based on an existing WSDL file. After the template is generated, the application developer adds the required back-end business logic, compiles and deploys the finished application to IMS, installs the XML converter for the application into IMS Connect, and deploys the web service to the SOAP Gateway server.

Before beginning this example walk-through, ensure that you have the following:

• IBM® Rational® Developer for System z® Version 8.0.3
• IMS Version 11 or later with an active IMS Connect host
• An IMS Enterprise Suite 2.1 SOAP Gateway server
• The example artifacts listed in Table 1 (included in the attached zip file)
