I see no reason to involve Java in the process.

Using Scott's HTTPAPI would make much more sense. After all why re- invent the wheel.

Calling Java from COBOL is not trivial. In fact I think it would be easier to use the native sockets APIs and write your own code than go through the hassles of JNI in COBOL. COBOL doesn't have the same built-in support for JNI that RPG has.

I need to call a WSDL-webservice from ILE COBOL.

I thing, one possible way would be to call a Java program /which then
calls the webservice/ from the COBOL program directly.
Other way could be to use the HTTPAPI

Any other ideas?
Does anyone on the list have experience with calling Java programs or web
services from COBOL?
