Core applications and processes based on DL/I databases with the requirement of integration of these applications in heterogeneous processes can now take advantage of modern functions implemented in z/VSE.
To have real time access to DL/I data from a remote platform, the z/VSE Java-based Connector, part of the z/VSE e-business Connectors was developed to solve this business need. It is build of 2 components:
Access to the DL/I is done through the DL/I online nucleus via MPS. The z/VSE connector client contains interfaces to interact via PSB and corresponding PCB with the DL/I subsystem and data.
Real time Access to DL/I data:
On the remote side the z/VSE Connector Client provides a program interface which can be exploited by any kind of program or web application. All kinds of DL/I requests can be performed, including CHECKPOINT and ROLLBACK.
