.net & mainframe

Hi ,

I would like to know if it is possible to have a Windows based client using
..net which can work with the DB2 database which is on a mainframe .. What
would the architecture be like and what will be required ? Any help on this
would be highly appreciated ....

Depends on the mainframe. If the mainframe is set up to allow a PC ODBC
driver to communicate over TCP/IP with DB2, then it's a matter of installing
the driver (IBM can help).

If the mainframe has DB2, but no access to the database, then look for
another solution...

Is the mainframe using the database from a CICS application?

If so, you may be able to simply communicate with the CICS application
instead of the database.
I like Hostbridge for this... allows you to see the CICS transactions as web
services.

Hope this helps,
--- Nick

You may want to check out mainframe data access solutions that will allow you
to do just this. One solution from GT Software called tcACCESS will allow
you to access DB2 on the mainframe.

Hi all, I can't get a py2exe compiled app to run with numarray (numarray-0.5.win32- py2.2). Also wxPythonWIN32-2.3.3.1-Py22 and ActivePython-2.2.1-222. In the sample below, commenting out "import numarray" allows the exe to run. Left in, I get "4.exe has generated errors" etc. I'm going around and around and there isn't much on Google. py2exe output is last.

Hi Anyone know where I can look for problem with codepage conversion between DB2 UDB Connect EE V8.2 (fixpak 3) and DB2 UDB z/OS V7.

Dear group, i am a seasoned DB2-veteran (6 years exp.) on the Windows- and Linux-Server platform. Once in a while i had a look into DB2 on the mainframe but mostly only watching other people do the job. Currently i have an offer to go into a very big shop which runs DB2 on the mainframe (OS is not yet specified, but they talk about VSAM, so it will be no UNIX on mainframe). From my knowledge DB2 on Linux or Windows is a different...

I just started using the mainframe (z/OS) 2 days ago, so I am very inexperienced in it. However, I need to write c++ programs for mainframe. Right now, the other mainframe programmers have showed me a complicated (seemed very complicated and painful to me) on how to compile, link, and execute using JCL (job control language) on the mainframe. However, I don't know JCL and those JCL files are quite confusing to figure how to edit them for...

Was curious if anyone codes C on a mainframe in TSO/ISPF and, if so, what they've done to get brackets ( ) recognized by both their terminal emulator and ISPF itself.

I'm able to type a bracket & it shows up as such on the screen, but once I hit enter, it gets translated into some strange character. I...

Hi, I need help here. I am converting an vb application to c#. The existing application connects to the mainframe server using FTP and downloads a file (dataset). Is it possible in .NET to avoid FTP and use any providers to connect to the mainframe server and download a file. I would appreciate if someone can give a reference to a link or code.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
