Re: IDMS Server
"The important thing to remember about Server is that there are ""2 ends"" - the JDBC/ODBC/other client end and the mainframe server end. You can make your life a whole lot more simpler and the run-time environment a whole lot more efficient by implementing the server end with a generic TCP listener and the SQL server task provided by CA. At the client end much training can be bypassed if you have people who have been coding Oracle/similar from Java (for example) - biggest change is the ""connection string"" if that's hard coded, or in the configuration of CA's JDBC driver. I have provided a DCMT display of our generic driver PTERM on the TCP line for IDMS Server. We have built up a document with a number of FAQ's that CA has answered for us over the years - I'll check with CA to see if they are happy for us to ""publish"" their collated replies.
