The Interface Mapper is the tool that enables you to define your service interfaces. You can define a service interface for a COBOL application from a COBOL program itself. The service interfaces you define can cover a broad range -- from those that provide access to a subset of the functions performed by your application, to interfaces that do more than your application in its original form.
