Connecting COBOL stored procedure from JAVA without using MQ, Direct Call or by Webservice.
Posted on 2017-07-13
We are doing a small POC to migrate MF screens to JAVA based webpages. As a matter of fact, we have created COBOL SPs to call relevant MF DC online programs. In case we need to call COBOL SP, what approach do JAVA team has to follow.
NOTE : IBM MQ is not supported by customer
IMS DC (IMS is the online component of my customer. IMS and DB2 databases are used by administration system) is not suggested as it needs additional work
Webservice / business services help should not be used.
What could be the approach do we have to follow?
P.s : I am neither JAVA expert nor Mainframe expert. Since I am managing a project, trying to get suggestions from various areas.
Moreover I heard something like wrapping COBOL stored procedure with DB2 so that it can be converted to DB2 SP(Do we have any approaches like that). In my customer's IT landscape they can call DB2 SP by using ODBC driver.
I am looking forward to see responses from experts.
