What are my choices for calling COBOL program from Java?

I am familiar with the concept of JCA.

However, any sample code or pointer thereof for real implementation will be appreciated.

It all depends where the Java and the COBOL programs live. We call IBM mainframe CICS COBOL from distributed systems via MQ-Series and COBOL stored procs via DirectConnect. I don't think we've pursued pure JCA solutions. Many vendors have products in this space like Attachmate Verastream.

You can run your Java on the mainframe, too. I have no hands on experience but IBM would love to show you how to run Linux and WebSphere under Z-OS, and I'm sure you could get Java and COBOL talking in other ways.
 
You guys haven't done this much, have ya? I suggest you study this tiny ad:
