I have a requirement in which I have to receive a file from jdbc and copy the contents of the file to a GDG.

Could some body tell me the best approach for this.

Write an interface to get the file and update the GDG? More importantly, since Excel formatted files are not readable on the mainframe, just what do you think you're going to accomplish by putting such a file into a GDG? Now if it were comma-delimited, I could see doing this (maybe) -- but not an Excel file.

Hello,

Create a delimited text file on the remote system and transfer the text file to the mainframe for processing.

None of the proprietary Windows/"office" formats are easily usable on the mainframe.

Thanks for the replys.

The major concern is how to get the file from jdbc to mainframes environment. The job will run for every 6 hours to capture the latest changes on JDBC side.

I am contemplating two ways for the above req:

1) to convert the EXCEL to a txt ( this will be done on JDBC) and then receive the txt file into mainframe. My doubt is whether we can receive a file in java server into mainframe using FTP job ?

2) To load the data into a DB2 table ( from JAVA side ) and access that table and create a report

Please suggest a better method if there is feasibility of above two options

From a Google search, there's free Java FTP classes available. Write an FTP to transfer data to JES on the mainframe so a job is submitted; this job can process your data and do whatever you need. Depending on the requirements you may want one FTP to upload the data, then another FTP to submit a job to process the data.

In a production environment, I would also be concerned about ensuring a failed transfer won't cause the same data to be picked up every 6 hours until the problem is fixed.
