Jacada integrator provides direct access to CICS and IMS transactions.

Jacada Ltd. (NASDAQ:JCDA) has expanded the capabilities of Jacada Integrator by adding a new connector for directly accessing IBM mainframe CICS and IMS transactions.

Based on proven acquired technology, this new release paves the way for additional transaction connectors to CA-IDMS/DC, IBM TPF, HP3000 and Fujitsu Siemens BS2000. Jacada Integrator is the leading solution for rapidly integrating core legacy business systems, including the data and processes in those systems, with any front-office, call center, CRM, or Web application as well as with a wide variety of middleware solutions.

The new Jacada Integrator Host Transaction Connector is a highly automated solution, which enables any type of developer to quickly access CICS and IMS mainframe transactions in a secure, scalable and non-intrusive manner, without relying on presentation logic such as the 3270 data streams or other screen-based protocols. Jacada Integrator Host Transaction Connector transforms CICS and IMS transactions into services that can be deployed natively in a J2EE environment as a JCA resource adapter or as an EJB (Enterprise JavaBean), or as XML, Web services, and .NET components.

"The ability to transform CICS and IMS transactions into reusable components provides organizations with tremendous value in leveraging the core business functionality of the mainframe and integrating these valuable applications into new e-business development efforts," said Dale Vecchio, Research Director--Application Development of Gartner. "In addition to the myriad of other heterogeneous environments at most large companies, mainframe organizations are increasingly looking toward these existing systems as sources of business value."

Most notably, this new ability to directly access CICS and IMS transactions is released as an integrated feature within the Jacada Integrator suite of products. Combined with the existing capabilities of Jacada Integrator Host Screen Connector, companies can now access the business logic and data in their legacy mainframe environments either through a non-intrusive, screen-based approach or by directly connecting to the existing CICS or IMS transactions.

"Regardless of the `condition' of a mainframe application, Jacada can easily connect the business logic in the legacy system with any third-party application, middleware, or application development environment--all from one tool," said David Holmes, executive vice president of Jacada.

Jacada Integrator Host Transaction Connector is generally available, and released as a new, integrated connector within version 3.8 of Jacada Integrator.
