I would like to use DataStage to exchange data between the different platforms and databases.
As a central machine I have to use mainframe ( with DB2 database )where all operations should be executed.
Data from other operating systems ( Windows, Unix ) and from files on mainframe will feed DB2.
This is what I want to achieve. In connection with that I've planned an installation of DataStage 390. When I read the documentation, I found out that I need COBOL compilator to use DS 390.
My first question is following :
-b:5cecad0b2f Is it possible to execute jobs on mainframe without COBOL compilator ?
( maybe I need some driver to do it ) [/b:5cecad0b2f]
The second one is :
- b:5cecad0b2fIf I need "to move" data files from mainframe to DB2 ( on mainframe of course), can I use DataStage Server. If "yes", how can I realize it? [/b:5cecad0b2f]
