How to get data from a mainframe
Posted on 2004-04-16
I need to do a proof of concept for Family Services, they have a mainframe (Unisys). What information do I need to run a pilot.
How can I pull data from a mainframe to determine foodstamp status?
It will be read only, a web interface, allowing local centers to pull up the secure site and determine the status of the food stamp request.
it will give people in service centers ability to use web interface for data from mainframe.
How do I connect and find the information from the mainframe?
Oracle 8i, coldfusion 5.
1) connect to mainframe somehow
2) dump data from mainframe to Oracle table/database - coldfusion query oracle for status... (how would I dump to oracle). Heterogeneous services?
let me know if you need more info.
