z/OS Connect v3.0.67 is enhanced to support IMS COBOL applications, mapping from OpenAPI 3.0 operations to IMS COBOL applications


We have released V3.0.67 of IBM z/OS Connect OpenAPI 2 and OpenAPI 3. For more information, see PH52418: z/OS Connect V3.0.67 and if you’re new to IBM z/OS Connect, find out more here.  


This release provides a new version of the z/OS Connect Operator (v1.0.5) and is enhanced to support the creation of z/OS Assets from IMS COBOL applications. OpenAPI3 operations can now be mapped to IMS z/OS Assets that are defined using message segments or Large Data Structures (LDS). The feature comes with a new Getting Started tutorial to help you quickly develop and test your API projects using z/OS Connect Designer, mapping OpenAPI 3.0 operations to the IMS COBOL application.

This release also delivers Aqua 3.3 support for the API Toolkit (OpenAPI 2.0) and is compatible with API toolkit V3.0.9.10, V3.2.9.10 and V3.3.0.
