Future Developers and Architects of web services access to CICS using Metastorm Integration Manager for CICS


This class is intended for students who will be responsible for working in an OpenText MIM for CICS environment to support integration with CICS programs and data via web services. This is an advanced level course and students in this class should possess some familiarity with z/OS, TSO/ISPF (or equivalent), networking, programming and computer fundamentals. This class assumes the student has a working knowledge of WebSphere MQ or takes our WebSphere MQ class. Students should be reasonably familiar with:

  • WebSphere MQ configuration
  • Concepts of WebSphere MQ distributed messaging
  • WebSphere MQ architectural concepts
  • Programming with a language such as C, C++, C#, Java, Perl, Ruby or JavaScript
