Much mission-critical data resides in file systems, such as IBM mainframe Virtual Storage Access Method (VSAM) data sets and AS/400 physical files. To reliably read and write to these data stores, enterprise developers––working with IBM host systems–must write custom COBOL or RPG programs. Yet, this development time can hamper enterprise IT rollout of new solutions. In this webcast, we examine Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 and Microsoft Host Integration Server 2006 (including the new Microsoft .NET Framework Data Provider for Host Files) technologies that allow enterprise developers to quickly and efficiently build new .NET Framework applications based on industry-standard XML Web Services.
