    ivangv,
    Please see the BoundedRecordsets sample on the SDK directory of the product folder: C:\Program Files\Microsoft BizTalk Adapters for Host Systems\SDK\Samples\ApplicationIntegration\WindowsInitiated\BoundedRecordsets
    Let me know if this works.
    Thanks,
    Ricardo

    Hello Reghur,
    Sorry for the delay in answering your questions. I was OOF presenting at Tech*Ed followed by vacations.
    The connectivity configuration can be tricky if you don't know the parameters that your host environment is using, this is common to all mainfrane integration products.
    IP-DLC is available only if the mainframe is configured to support this, if not you can still configure a SNA Link using either a DLC or Ethernet connection. After all, IP-DLC is simple SNA over IP.
    Regarding host footprint, please note that there is no HIS comnponents that you need to install oin the host. We use well know ports and protocols to access the host resources.
    FInally, at this momment there is not design tool for Session Integrator, we only provide a robust and high performance screeen scrapping runtime environment.
    Thanks,
    Ricardo

    Steve,
    The answer is yes, by using the Transaction Integrator - Windows Initiated Processing feature.
    Thanks,

    Hi Motowillians,
    Host Integration Server allows a .NET or COM object to be called from a Host Application running on IBM Mainframes or AS/400 computers thru the Transaction Integrator - Host Initiated Processing feature. Altough this feature was not designed to be called from DB2, if you have DB2 on one of the host platforms mentioned above, you can execute a host program from DB2 which in turn will can your .NET or COM component thru the Transaction Integrator - Host Initiated Processing feature.
    Hope that this helps.
    Thanks,
    Ricardo

    Tim,

    I was not a sysprog in a previous life (at least I don't recall being one Big Smile). To keep the story short, sometime (not to say years) ago I was working on a project to integrate WinDNA applications (yeah, you heard correctly - there were no CLR at that time, unfortuntely) with mainframe applications. That was my first contact with HIS and since then, as I always was curius about other computer platforms, I start learning the internals of it. The end result is that currently I'm able to apply my .NET knowledge to design Mainfarme integration solutions as you saw on this short video.

    You can expect additional HIS related content in the feature, as recording these videos is really fun! Big Smile

    Take care,

    Ricardo
