On behalf of Broadcom, we appreciate your business and the opportunity to provide you with high-quality, innovative software and services. As part of our ongoing commitment to customer success, we regularly release updated versions and new features of our products. Today, we are pleased to announce our latest update of the CA IDMS Rest API 1.0.1 0000 which is now available for licensed CA IDMS customers on Generally Available (GA) release(s) of the base CA IDMS/DB™ z/OS Plus product.
Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) provide modern, scalable access to z/OS services, tools, and data. With the CA IDMS REST API, you can use modern development tools to maintain your CA IDMS applications and leverage your mainframe investment.
As part of the Broadcom CA Database modernization strategy, APIs play a role in transforming the mainframe for hybrid IT by making the mainframe a more integrated and agile platform. The IDMS REST API can extend database applications and automate database application maintenance and administration.
The API also addresses a skills challenge; by providing a familiar and flexible way to interact with traditional mainframe platform, it can help ease new DBAs and developers into mainframe roles by allowing them to work with familiar tools and environments:
REST API Architecture
The CA IDMS REST API is built on the representational state transfer (REST) architecture with the exception of some services that are based on Remote Procedure Call (RPC) protocol.
