What do I need to install (minimum) to access VSAM files on zOS platform from a Windows C++ application RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I need to read and search VSAM files on an IBM zOS mainframe from a Windows C++ application.

    From reading the forums I think I need to use OLEDB interface via Host Integration Server (HIS) over SNA/LU6.2?

    I would prefer to use ODBC interface (over TCPIP) but I haven't found a solution to this - is there one?

    If the only way is to use OLEDB and HIS, please tell me where I can download full HIS install from (including SDK with examples).

    How does Biztalk relate to HIS? It is not clear from the web pages! Can I get HIS separately or do I need BizTalk?

    Thanks for your help
