Hi abc_new,

Re: Mainframe connectivity

Are there any other options ? Basically, for my use case, I am trying to connect to a mainframe z/OS. One option is to connect to DB2 which is running on z/OS. I am trying to connect from Talend Enterprise ESB. If there is a JDBC adapter or other approach e.g., managed connection to DB2 on z/OS ?
We are currently using both, Sybase DirectConnect as well as DB2Connect. We intend to move out of these product stacks and move into something which is opensource (not looking for community editions).
Also, for an additional requirement I would like to know if translation to/from ASCII and EBCDIC and vice-versa happens only with tFileInputEBCDIC and tFileOutputEBCDIC. Are there any other options. Again I am considering only enterprise editions of Talend.
