Importing COBOL copybook into webmethods designer

Hi All,

We have few fields in the Oracle database which contains business rules stored in flat field format.

We need to fetch the field from DB and parse it using COBOL copybook since the field is updated using COBOL logic.

Can someone please advice as to how to use COBOL copybook into webMethods designer to parse this field?


Hi Swaathi,

can you provide a sample of the data as a reference?

One option might be to create a flatfile dictionary/schema and then use pub.flatfile:convertToValues to produce an IntegrationServer-Document which than can be parsed/queried using XPATH-Queries for service pub.xml:queryXMLNode.

Please have a look at the FlatFile-Developers Guide as well as the IntegrationServer Built-In-Services Guide.
