1) what are all the databases that can be used in Mainframes, other than DB2, IMS and ADABAS?


2) Is it not possible to use the windows based databases in Mainframes?

There are probably dozens of databases (depending on how precisely that term is defined) in use on mainframes. It would take a lot of time to come up with a list, and probably a few weeks to ensure it is a comprehensive list.

Windows has a different architecture, disk structure, file structure, and collating sequence. Why on earth would you even think using Windows based databases on a mainframe would be possible? There are databases -- such as DB2 and Oracle -- that have mainframe and Windows functionality but the products are not identical on the different platforms.
