I'm not too sure whether this is the right place to post this topic.
Has anyone tried an alternative to implement the CICS journaling mechanism and store the data in the database?
I'm planning to implement that. Each and every action of the user request will be stored in the database in some format (XML or BLOB or CLOB).
My worry is all about the performance. To solve the performance issue, I'm thinking of using JDBC for all the queries to the database and use JMS --> MQ --> COBOL (asynchronous) for all journaling related transactions. This way the application's performance will not be affected i guess.
Any ideas? If anyone else have tried this earlier or have an idea about this, throw some light whether is this the right way or is there any other way to approach this. [ November 30, 2004: Message edited by: Aravindan Ramanujam ]
