Is it possible to display an image like a customers photograph or a fingerprint on a mainframe screen by any means.How would that be stored in the system.
I myself feel this is not a very relevant question but if anybody has an idea about this it would be great.
I am sorry if the question looks ambiguous.
I am presently not working on any specific requirement that requires an image on the mainframe screen per se..
This is just a technical question.From what I found out its fairly simple to store a jpeg image in a windows based scheme like a VB-ORACLE set up where in the image gets stored in the Oracle DB and gets displayed using a VB based front end.
The query basically is whether this can be achieved in a mainframe.If yes how would we store it in lets say DB2 and is it possible to perhaps display the photograph of a customer lets says for a customer with order# XXX if a query tries to access it.Can CICS handle anything like this.Do we have any such arrangement in a mainframe set up.
