Virtel Web Integration allows creating interactive bidirectional dialogs across the Internet between host (CICS, IMS, Ideal, Natural, etc) and server-based applications using XML/HTML web services or other communication procedures.
Incoming calls - To expose host applications to web clients though web services, Virtel can be configured to:
Outgoing calls - In the outgoing direction (host-initiated web services) the mechanism is the same, just reverse.
Process control - Custom-developed Virtel scenarios and scripts allow to:
Data transformation tools include:
This kind of versatility is unequaled in the web integration solution market.
As illustrated below, custom-developed Virtel scenarios and scripts allow calling:
Those data access routines can be activated:
Accessing host data directly, i.e. without activating a host (3270) transaction, can yield high performance improvements and MIPS savings. It is an attractive solution for self-service applications that let very large user populations access personal data without restriction.
