Integrating IBM CICS with J2EE using JCA

Hi All...
I would like to do a J2EE project using different J2EE technologies - servlets,JDBC,JSP,EJB etc.

For this I want to use IBM CICS as a backend for the database; can i connect using Java Connector architecture(JCA)???I have read a couple of articles about JCA;came to know that it is like JDBC.

I know that we can use either Oracle/SQL server as a temporary database and then we can write into CICS.But instead of going through the old way,i want to do the same using JCA.Will I be able to do that???But i could not understand where to start and how to proceed.I could not get some sample code even?So can anyone please guide me about this so that i can start the project right from the database design in CICS???

Thanking You,
Radha.

It really depends what platform you are planning to use. JCA is good things to start with, but some platforms they have very good support for JCA. I have used WLI (Weblogic Integration Platform) They have very good support for JCA. You could develop an Adapter for CICS application and define your business requirements using Application View.
BEA have very documentation for integration.
Look at it

Hi Siva...
Iam planning to use Websphere 5.0.Is that ok??Does WAS has good support for JCA??I don't want to go for the same old process b'se by this way i will have an opportunity to learn JCA.
I don't know much about EJB or other J2EE technologies.And for JCA do i have to learn EJB or any other J2EE technology? I know only servlets and JSP and that too i haven't deployed them yet in WAS(know in Tomcat).So with this knowledge do u think that i will be able to integrate CICS with J2EE??
Thanks for ur reply,
Radha

You don't have to learn EJB to use JCA. You could use it from Servlet or any ordinary Java Class.I am not sure how Websphere supports JCA. But it should be supporting as it is J2EE1.3 certified. Check the documentation of websphere.
Study JCA. Anyways it is always good to learn EJB.
