There is a great new article on MSDN magazine on how to connect to mainframe applications with BizTalk Adapters and .NET.
This article discusses:
• Connecting to a host system
• Exposing COBOL apps as endpoints
• .NET Framework integration
• Terminal screen-scraping
Almost every major industry that uses mainframe for business critical systems still uses COBOL. In this article, you will learn about BizTalk adapters for mainframes, exposing COBOL applications as endpoints and .NET assemblies and adding them to any business process managed by BizTalk.
