Establishes connections with a CICS application.
A CICS Transaction Gateway can host several servers running different applications. In a CICS application, the display and business logics are usually managed in distinct programs.
Programs exchange input and output data through a memory pool called COMMAREA (COMMON AREA). The COMMAREA is usually mapped by a definition of COBOL data included in communicating programs. This definition can be stored in two ways:
• built in the source code of the CICS program,
• stored in a separate file, called copybook, that is copied when compiling.
From a Convertigo point of view, a CICS connector represents a gateway server.
|Comment||String||standard||Describes the object comment to include in the documentation report.
This property generally contains an explanation about the object.
|Mainframe||String||standard||Defines the mainframe name (or its IP address).|
|Port||int||standard||Defines the server port number.|
|Server||String||standard||Defines the server name (or its IP address).|
|User id||String||standard||Defines the user identification for connecting to the CICS server.|
|User password||String||standard||Defines the user password for connecting to the CICS server.|
|Billing Java class||String||expert||Defines the Java class name executed for billing pruposes.
Convertigo supports a plugin architecture offering billing functionalities. Set the name of the billing class to be called by Convertigo for billing purposes.
|Carioca authentication||boolean||expert||Defines whether the connector requires a Carioca authentication.
Set to true if you require that only Carioca-authenticated users be able to use this connector.
|End transaction||String||expert||Defines the transaction to execute before removing the context.
When a Convertigo context is removed, the specified “End transaction” is executed. Place in this transaction any clean up code, for example a Logout transaction.
