JSMDirect is a HTTP extension to the Java Service Manager.
It enables a LANSA or 3GL application using the Java Service Manager to participate in Web services for B2B transactions.
LANSA or 3GL applications are executed from a single entry point CGI program.
The JSMDirect CGI program handles the reading of the HTTP request and sending of the HTTP response.
For example, a browser might request the following:
JSMDirect makes the data transfer to the JSM transparent to the application developer and greatly simplifies application development. For example, if you are creating a 2-way XML application, your customers will send you an XML document. Using JSMDirect, the XML document can be sent by the customer and a LANSA function will be run to receive, process the XML document and send a response. XML parsing and translation are supported directly from the Java Service Manager.
For details on running LANSA applications with JSMDirect, refer to Java Service Manager HTTP Extensions.
