Learn how to expose data from a Db2® database and a CICS® application through z/OS® Connect and create APIs to access that data with IBM API Connect®.
This work was done as part of the Example Health set of code patterns that demonstrate how cloud technology can access data stored on z/OS Systems. We needed a way to access the large amounts of data stored on a Db2 database and a CICS application. We used z/OS Connect and API Connect to expose the data through REST APIs. z/OS Connect provides a way to unleash your existing market-differentiating IBM assets with RESTful APIs. API Connect allows automated API creation, simple discovery of assets, self-service access for developers, and built-in security and governance. z/OS Connect exposes the data from Db2 and CICS as REST APIs, then API Connect is used to create a way to easily access the APIs through an intuitive portal.
This developer code pattern is for those with an intermediate-level understanding and experience working with IBM Z®, z/OS, and Eclipse tools like IBM Explorer for z/OS.
When you have completed this code pattern, you will understand how to:
