Using CICS web services for HTTP traffic

You can use CICS® web services to record, redirect, or create stubs for HTTP traffic. CICS programs can make available or use HTTP-based web services.

About this task

HCL OneTest™ API can be used to do these tasks.

  • Test a CICS program that is available as an HTTP web service.
  • Virtualize an HTTP-based web service that is called from a CICS program.
  • Use the HTTP client open exit XWBOPEN to specify an HTTP proxy for the CICS programs to use.

You can then use the HTTP/TCP proxy from the HCL Quality Server to test HTTP traffic.

To record or virtualize a web service that is called from a CICS transaction:

Procedure

  1. Ensure that CICS uses the HTTP proxy included in the HCL Quality Server.
  2. Configure CICS to use an HTTP proxy by using the HTTP client open exit XWBOPEN.

    For information about how to specify an HTTP proxy for CICS, go to HTTP client open exit XWBOPEN.
