Demo of consuming a REST API from an IMS pgm using Z/OS Connect EE


z/OS Connect Enterprise Edition is the strategic enabler for integrating IBM Z within the API economy. We start a demo based on the IMS PhoneBook application showing how to consume a REST API from an IMS application. We use a Cloudant API to call from the IMS PhoneBook program using z/OS Connect EE. We then discuss some of z/OS Connect EE and IMS outbound security considerations.
