Creating an IMS Web 2.0 project in Rational Developer for System z : Mashup Center 2.0Added by IBM on November 20, 2009 | Version 1 (Original)
Contents: MashupHub User and Administrator Guide : Mashup Center 2.0
Create an IMS Web 2.0 project to store the XML converter driver and correlator file that are to be generated.
Before you begin
To generate the XML converter driver and the correlator file, you must have a COBOL copybook that describes the format of the input and output messages for your IMS application.
About this task
To generate the XML converter driver and the correlator file:
- Start Rational® Developer for System z®. From the Start menu, click All Programs -> IBM Software Development Platform -> IBM Rational Developer for System z -> IBM Rational Developer for System z.
Tip: Rational Developer for System z prompts you for the directory or workspace where all your project files are stored. If you are new to Rational Developer for System z, record the full path to the workspace. You need to know the location for files that are later generated in your workspace.
- Open the Enterprise Service Tools perspective.
If the EST Project Explorer
tab is visible, you are already using the Enterprise Service Tools perspective. Skip to the next step.
- Click Window -> Open Perspective -> Other. The Open Perspective window opens.
- Click Enterprise Service Tools and then click OK. The Enterprise Service Tools perspective opens.
- In the EST Project Explorer tab, right-click and select New -> IMS Web 2.0 Project. The New IMS Web 2.0 Project window opens for you to create an IMS Web 2.0 project.
- Type a project name and click Next. The "Import source files" page is displayed.
Tip: The Enterprise Service Tools Wizard supports the creation of service interfaces for several different types of projects. For IMS Web 2.0 projects, only the bottom-up development scenario and the service provider application mode are supported. The bottom-up development scenario is for creating a new service interface from an existing enterprise application. The service provider application mode means that the enterprise application serves as a service provider that receives requests from external applications.
- Click File System, Workspace, or Remote to navigate to the location of your COBOL source file. The source file must include the input and output language structures of the application.
- If the source file has other dependent files, you are prompted if the dependent files should also be imported. Make the appropriate selection and click Open.
- Click Finish to create the project and download the source files into the project folder. The new IMS Web 2.0 project is created, and the new project displays in the EST Project Explorer.
What to do next
You are ready to generate the IMS Web 2.0 resources from your application source file.
