Hi ,
Currently I have a batch program which is in mainframe platform. I want to know how we can transmit the output file of this batch program (Minimum number of accounts is:- 3000 and also variable length) to the server in Unix. We will also get response file from Unix server.
The unix Server we can be accessed using the following different technologies:
· TCP/IP-Socket using a C library
· TCP/IP-Socket using Java
· Messaging systems (via JMS)
· Webservice

I got a information like we can do the same using CICS with the help of VSAM file. But donot how? How we can execute like batch p-rogram?

Any could you please let me know how we can achieve this.

Thanks in avance

Hello,

As there are multiple ways to do what you want, which process to use needs to be determied locally (by the network support and management). If there is already a process working and is standard, suggest you use this.

I do not believe an application developer should independently implement something.

Why not just use FTP or some other data mover product ?

or
you might want to consider BatchCICS-Connect as a solution, it would
enable you to communicate from your batch program to a client application
on your Unix Server via CICS.
