I have a question related to booking airfare. It mentions that there is a legacy system written in Cobol. I think that the new booking airfare has to interface with this legacy system to get flight information (e.g. seat availability). Is my understanding correct?

Thank you very much!

The IMS database will be replaced with a relational database like Oracle, Sybase or Informix.


So, my guess is that its a complete re-write!

I found this old topic while looking for the same answer.
Well from my understanding, since they mention that IMS
Database will be replaced by Relational DB- and it's not my task
to rewrite Cobol functions to interface Oracle- you can convert
this system to a pure J2EE.

On the other hand, the purchase system mentioned (Transmaster)
should be kept running. You must interface it with J2ee system using secure sockets connections.

I hope that somebody will join the discussion, so I can
be confident that I have understood correctly the requirements.
Thanks
Francesco

Hi Francesco,

"TransMaster, in order to expand market share, is in the process of creating a new API that relies on the Internet"

I think you must consider that observation.
