IBM provides a way to connect to DB2 databases from Open world : DB2connect.
DB2connect authenticates a client, and handles eventual EBCDIC / ASCII-UNICODE conversions.
Oracle has a product (Access Manager for CICS) that allows CICS transactions
I am looking for a similar product that would give z/OS programs (typically COBOL programs) running into JES2 / CICS access to MicroSoft SQL server.
To summarize, I'm looking for an equivalent of ODBC connectivity for z/OS
Thank you, guys.
