Hi,

Could you please let me know how to upload a pdf document on mainframe to share point. (Im having something similar to FTP in mind)
Please share your thoughts if you have done this at some point. Is there some sort of API or any web link pointer for the same.
Thank & Regards,

Hi Vasanth,

Is there a pdf file being created on your mainframe to be uploaded to Sharepoint on a Win-based server? All of the Sharepoint i've seen or reference are Win-based.

In the organizations i've been involved with someone or group is responsible for supporting the Sharepoint environment and they have published the "how-to's" for their environment.

Hopefully, i have not misunderstood, but i'm correctable icon_wink.gif

The, rather expensive utility Connect Direct, essentially provides an easy-to-use interface with data transmission, of any type.

If you have something like CD, there exist (in CD Language) nodes, which represent something that is not your mainframe hardware,
like servers,
that will provide immediate access to these files for desktops,
after the transmission.

Anything not tied to the mainframe,
which the mainframe ops-sys software can not control
(like servers for PC's)
but,
with which the mainframe can communicate,

can be provided an address and the data sent.

Security Prospective:

Anytime you open a comm channel with the mainframe ops-sys you are opening up a 'hole in your firewall'.
for which you don't ever want to take responsibilty.
(the last should also have been in bold!)

Most shops that I have worked at, decided that running everything destined - off site - should communicate via servers,
that would be dedicated to that task, with about 16-tons of security software.

What I am trying to say is that either
  1. your site has a procedure, suggest you follow it.
  2. your site has no procedure, and you are the poor schmuck that has to develop one.
    IMUO, if you can afford it, download from the mainframe to an in-house server and let the server software
    1. package/bundle/pretty-up your data and
    2. take responsibility for sending it....

obviously, that would apply to reception, also.

I'll hazard a guess that you're talking about "cloud computing in mainframes", are you?

Hi Anuj,

I suspect rather that the goal is to exploit Sharepoint's capabilities. Don't know about a "cloud". . .

Everywhere i've been tout Sharepoint as a "Collaboration Tool". Unfortunately most are grossly mismanaged. What has often happened is that various content has been uploaded to Sharepoint very much like the old "k" or "J" of "d" Drive. When someone asks where to find the list of "whatever" , the answer is "Look on the "K" Drive. . .

I'm not aware of a mainframe implementation of Sharepoint.

Last year, i was sent to more than a week of Sharepoint training and it showed great potential. Unfortunately, it is only as good as the weekest manager who is allowed to do whatever they want. . .

Hi all,
Thanks for your thoughts & ideas.

Yes we have PDF reports emailed from mainframe with SAS.

we are just looking for a common reports repository to maintain the reports generated.

There was a link on the web
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-sharepoint-services-help/add-content-to-sites-by-sending-e-mail-HA010086730.aspx
which says,

"You can add content — such as e-mail discussions, documents, pictures, and calendar items — to a Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 site by sending the content in e-mail to your site. If your list or library is set up to receive e-mail, this may be a more convenient way to work."


Let me try it out.

If the email upload option is possible, then i think we can email it from mainframe & the concern for a security issue is minimized.

Thanks,
