I would like some other peoples thoughts on a few topics and how to design/architech the following:
Parameters: IBM AS400;DB2 server and database. WebSphere web server.
Faced with: Receiving flat file data from multiple external sources, through a middleware FTP product (really a PULL mechanism, we are considering XML at a later phase.)
Consider: We have resident on our file system these flat data files (ASCII TEXT). What is the best approach in Java to code routines (Servlets/Applications/EJB's) to process this inbound data and insert it into the DB2 database. Please provide reasons for any approach so that I may further investigate and make recommendations.
I am new to Java but not to Enterprise applications and integration. I would like to be able to apply some of the best available Java methods to construct these interfaces (application interfaces)
Thanks to anyone who replies!
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
