I am on the process of developing a tool using Visual Basic which will run on windows platform. The tool is basically handling SQL queries. I am sending queries through the tool to DB2. Can anyone guide me how to connect to the mainframe database through Visual Basic as this is the first time I am trying to connect to Mainframes through windows!
You can do it by using DB2CONNECT entreprise version software. Before this, you need to have a port opened by your DB2 DBA for this tool to access the database.
You can use a ODBC:JDBC driver to connect to DB2 from a Java applicarion. I am not sure about VB.
