Pinned topic DataStage 390 and COBOL compilator

‏2004-06-02T05:14:55Z |
Hi,

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]
Thanks for any idea.

Anka

    As Ray already mentioned in another forum here, when using DS EE MVS there is no way "around" COBOL on MVS...

    If you're looking for a way to to it with the DS server please look to my answer under your DB2 topic.

    Bottomline you need to have IBM VS COBOL compiler and asset software packages like ENDEAVOR. Lets put it this way a WRITER needs a pen or laptop to do his/her trade or an infantry soldier going to battle with his/her M16 rifle.
