DB2 Z/OS V8 - Web Service Consumer UDF's
Hello Every one,

We are looking for ways to invoke web services from Z/OS platform which
are created on Websphere environment. One solution given by one of our
team member is to use the "Web Service Consumer UDF's".

Anybody in this list have used this technique. Could you please share what
are the prerequisites for this approach and how feasible this approach is.

- Do we need to have XML extender for this to work ? Is this licensed or
shipped free with DB2 V8 on Z/OS.

(As per the redbook titled 'XML for DB2 Information Integration'
SG24-6994-00, it looks like XML extender is a required software,
See Chapter 10)

Are there any other methods you have used to invoke web services from
mainframe environment. Could you please share your ideas.

TIA

- Pete
