MSDN Webcast: BizTalk Adapter for Host Applications (Level 200)
Enterprise computing is based on high-volume transaction and batch processing systems, such as IBM mainframe and midrange host computers. To modernize these heritage systems, organizations are using business process orchestration in Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006. The attendee of this webcast will learn how the new BizTalk Adapter for Host Applications allows enterprises to connect BizTalk Server solutions to existing IBM mainframe zSeries (CICS and IMS) or midrange iSeries (AS/400) server programs. Based on technology from the Microsoft Transaction Integrator (TI), this adapter offers an intuitive Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 designer, including host COBOL and RPG source code import wizards for generating XML Schema (XSD) for BizTalk Server projects.
