Course Description

Writing z/OS CGIs in COBOL

Course Code: UC04
Recommended Duration: 2 Days


CGI stands for Common Gateway Interface, and it is the most widely used programming technology for creating dynamic web pages at the server. Students who complete this course will be able to design and code CGI programs in COBOL to run on z/OS used as a web server.


COBOL programmers experienced with working in an OS/390 or z/OS environment who will be designing and coding CGI applications that are to be run on z/OS.


At the very least, the student entering this course should have an understanding of CGI concepts and design issues, such as might be obtained from attending "Introduction to CGIs on z/OS".
