The Cedar Bank COMTI component contains two methods (getbal and getaccts) that client applications use to retrieve bank account information for CICS or IMS. The getbal method accesses the getbal.cbl mainframe transaction program on the host, passing it a customer name and account number, and returning the account balance. The getaccts method accesses the Getaccts.cbl transaction program on the host, passing a customer name and PIN and returning a number of "account" records, each containing a set of fields with information about one of the customer's accounts. The getaccts method returns the account records as an ActiveX Data Object (ADO) recordset that can be accessed from your application code or connected to data-bound controls in Internet Explorer.
Once you configure Host Integration Server 2000 to communicate with your host system, you can use the COBOL source code files provided for each remote environment (RE) to create the getbal.cbl and Getaccts.cbl transaction programs and install them in CICS or IMS. The getbal.cbl and Getaccts.cbl files that you need are located in the same folder that contains the COMTI component (.tlb file).
