Pulling Data from a remote IBM Universe database

I need to pull data from a remote IBM Universe database (10.1.2 is the version I believe)
"remote" meaning another server in our local network.
I would imagine the only way to do this is ODBC based.

The only method I have now is to pull the data from a IBM based terminal program on the server itself and save it as a local file that then has to be transported to another server .. This all has to be done by a human, so it is tedious and error prone.

I have looked into Products like MITTS and some other tools but they seem to be reporting only, I need to pull actual data from the Universe database tables.

I have searched and searched and can only seem to find reporting type solutions.

Doesn't seem to fit.

Unless I am misunderstanding it?

There is a JDBC driver available for Universe that can be used to run SQL statements against Universe files. It is a solution that is easy to implement and flexible for gaining standard access to your Universe data.

The unijdbc.jar file is installed onto your system when you install UniDK, from the Universe installation CD. If the CD is unavailable you should be able to download the clients for Universe from here:
