Demo of Consuming a REST API from an IMS program using z/OS Connect EE


zSystem is often seen as a backend system. But it’s not true: zSystem interacts more and more with applications outside of its area, and sometimes outside of the company’s area. It can be a micro service in a cloud provider like Amazon, or Azure. Those micro services use the REST standard to interact with. On the zSystem this standard is not simple to apply in Cobol or PL1. To make this integration smooth, one option is to use z/OS Connect EE. In this presentation you will see how to call a REST API from an IMS transaction with z/OS Connect EE.
