Integrating Web applications and Mainframe.

  1. Jul 19, 2012 #1
    Hi All,

    I have a very basic question on integrating two applications of different technologies. Let's take a web and a mainframe application, and we all know this could be integrated through 'web services'.

    But is it possible to integrate these two applications without using webservices; i.e. by using a simple XML and having a parser program at both the ends?
    Is it possible to build a online or batch interface using XMLs in above case, if yes, any specific factors related to technology should be take care?

    Thank you.
