Hi All,

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.

TIA!

So how will you access the data on the mainframe without logging into the mainframe in some fashion or another ?

Hello,

I suggest you re-think your design. To use the mainframe and run processes there, some kind of authorization/identification will be needed.

How do you run "things" on a unix or win-based system without some kind of login?

I suspect that your security people and the auditors would put a stop that immediately.

Hi Dick,

Thanks for your reply.

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.

Hi Expat/dick,

I hope that i have specified the requirement wrongly in my initial mail.

I specified with out logging into the mainframes using the emulator instead of without logging into the mainframes through the emulator.

I understand we need some login process to log into mainframes. But dont know how to do it.

You're welcome icon_smile.gif

You may be able to do what you want using LU6.2. I'm not familiar with the mechanics, but someone else here may be.

Here is a link from the folks at Sybase that may have info you can use also

Good luck and let us know in which direction you proceed.
