HI,
I wanna write a BMP which will responsible for getting data from Mainframe. I know I dont have to use JDBC Layer to establish database layer. I know BMP is good for getting data from legacy system, e.g. Mainframe, AS400 etc
Any pointer to this ? How to achieve it ?
Some steps, links will be great help.
Thanks in advance

There are a zillion ways to connect to services on mainframes, depending on what you call a mainframe and what you need to get to. In my world mainframe means MVS/CICS/COBOL/DB2. You can "screen scrape" an existing green screen (choice of last resort), use database gateways, JDBC, MQ-Series, External Call Interface, proprietary middleware of all sizes and shapes. If you run J2EE on WebSphere, I think IBM has a suite of connectors to most anything else they make. You can even run WebSphere on Linux on the mainframe and use J2EE for communication.
So, the field is target rich as they say in TV wars. Zactly what do you have to hook up to?
