We have objective of integrating Host integration server with Mainframes, so that the end user can perform screen scrapping. Do you have an idea or alternative to perform this activity. From the mainframe persective we had really struggled a lot to integrate the Host integration server(Microsoft) with mainframes, but we are ending up in failure. Are there any product where we can perform screen scrapping and here big thing is to make sure the end user are not able to view the Mainframe screen.

Rather than screen scraping, have you looked at exposing the CICS applications as web services?

Take a look at this IBM write-up on CICS Web services (

It will give you a good indication of what the interface can do.
