CC03: CICS JCA resource adapters for use with JEE application servers

Downloadable files


Abstract

The CICS JCA resource adapters are provided, in order to support connectivity from JEE application servers to CICS using the facilities of the CICS Transaction Gateway.

Download Description

The latest service levels of the CICS Transaction Gateway (CICS TG) Java Enterprise Edition Connector Architecture (JCA) resource adapters for CICS TG versions 6.1, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 8.0, 8.1, and 9.0 are available for download for deployment into supported Java Enterprise Edition (JEE) application servers. These resource adapters can be used to provide JCA connectivity into CICS using the facilities of a licensed CICS TG installation, and are designed around the JCA specification as supported by JEE application servers such as WebSphere Application Server and Oracle Weblogic Server.

For compatibility reasons, connectivity from the CICS JCA resource adapters to a remote CICS TG is only supported, if the remote CICS TG is at the same or higher release level than the version of the JCA resource adapter. The version of the resource adapters is listed in the <resourceadapter-version> element in the ra.xml file, supplied with the resource adapter package.

For details of resource adapters compatible with a given JEE application server, refer to Supported Software for CICS Transaction Gateway products.

For details on the interoperability options for remote clients connecting to the CICS TG, refer to the following support article on CICS Transaction Gateway support for remote clients.
