z/OS Connect 1.2

This feature provides a gateway between mobile, cloud, and web clients and z/OS back-end systems such as CICS Transaction Server, IMS, and batch applications. It provides RESTful APIs and enables you to route HTTP requests to remote REST endpoints. It also accepts and returns JSON payloads and communicates with back-end systems by providing a data transformation service that converts JSON payloads to/from byte arrays consumable by z/OS native-language applications written in Cobol, PL/I, and C.
