IDMS to Oracle/SQL SVR

Greetings list,

We are currently on IDMS r16.2 and have a WebLogic application accessing
it, and with great success. This is done thru an TCP/IP connection.
There is now a project underway to do a proof of concept to have an IDMS
program access an Oracle, or SQL Server database.
I have been doing my homework and see that it can be done. Now I'm
trying to put together the pieces on the IDMS side for a very simple
test to pass one piece of data, and get a simple message saying it was
received. =20
Being the mainframe bigot that I am, I thought it best to check with
this group for ideas and recommendations, before jumping into the pond.
So any ideas, war stories, victory dances, and recommendations would be
greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

"Do you have WebSphere MQSeries on the mainframe? We use that product
with MQSeries OCA for IDMS to access all other platforms including
Windows, UNIX, and AIX servers from IDMS.
