    Customer asked us if is possible to use API gateway to act as a sort of "middleware" to control session timeout.

    Basically, the API gateway should allow the traffic between mainframe and a remote java application (running as a server on a windows box).
    If for some reason, the session between the parties hangs, the API gateway should close the session.

    We found that the Route Via Raw TCP provides features thats seems to fit the request. Anyone has already setup a similar scenario ?

    We made some internal test and found out that some codepage like CP280 are not supported in the final scenario.

    We are working with Broadcom support to solve this.
