The EntireX RPC Server for IMS allows standard RPC clients to communicate with RPC servers on the operating system z/OS running with IMS in BMP mode. It supports the programming languages COBOL, PL/I and C and can provide IMS-specific PCB pointers for access to IMS databases if needed.
For C, use the C Wrapper.
Supported compilers are listed under z/OS Prerequisites under Prerequisites in the EntireX Release Notes.
