Is it possible that any user put input through some web panel (designed in JAVA) and the JCL be created in mainframe may be through REXX and then finally the output summary be reverted back to the user.
I short is there any mean to separate user from mainframe and yet let them provide means to input to the mainframe.
I am afraid that I do not have MQ series setup. Actually I dont know much about these setup. I am working on mainframe and this is a new request even I know JAVA only a bit.
Will it be possible for me to implement it?

Alright If you dont have MQ, then you can try this option.
You can develop Java class and get user input from Java Apps and then do FTP put command to trigger the JCL on Mainframe. The job gets processed on Mainframe say it takes 5 minutes to process and create an extract file. From Java class try to do FTP get extract file, if the file is in-use (currently being created by the execution JCL) then keep re-try until you get the extract file.
Display and format the file in Java Class.
