From COBOL /MQ [MainFrame Client], can we call a Message Driven Bean deployed in Websphere [Windows Server].

If this is possible, what is the method, any tutorials for this?

Yes, it is possible, but the "call" is not the correct word in the messaging world.
You can send a MQ message from a COBOL (or any other) program into a
message queue which a MDB can listen to.
