CA IDMS Tuesday Tip by Cal Domingue, Principal Support Engineer for August 27, 2013.

CA IDMS 18.5 introduces the new SQL Web Connect feature. This feature gives limited SQL access to CA IDMS for sites that are not licensed for the CA IDMS SQL option or for CA IDMS Server. Two concurrent users are allowed to access IDMS at any one time using either ODBC or JDBC type 4 connections.

To Install the SQL Web Connect Feature you do not need to install the full SQL option but you need to create an SQL Catalog if you don't already have one and install CA IDMS Server. Also required is the CA LMP Seat License Registration Service from CA Common Services 14.1. Further details are available in TEC597925 and the Installation and Maintenance Guide for z/OS chapter SQL Web Connect.
