I am in plan of developing a tool which should trigger Rexx and cobol program in mainframes from front end developed using .Net.
Say i have a requirement to search for a string in a PDS with out logging into mainframes using the emulator. I just want to do everything from front end by establishing logical connection with mainframes.
If anyone have worked in similar tool or have idea how to implement pls share it with me.
I didnt mean that we need to trigger the process in mainframes with out logging using TSO ID. What i meant was we shdnt login through the emulator instead we should have the login functionality in the .net appl itself and trigger the process.
I have seen calling a bat file in windows from mainframe through pgm rexec but i have never seen it vice versa. Pls let me know if we have any interface built for it in any of the distributed appls.
