I have to retrieve data from a remote system (May be of any operating system) and shall put into AS/400.
This process should be automated and there can't be any manual intervention.
We can not use FTP commands here.
Is there any other way this can be achieved.
Can?t go for MQ Series either as the cost is not justifiable for our case.
Any suggestion regarding would be of great help.
One of my clients used to use Sockets for communicating between an AS400 and a Unix box and that worked very well.
I keep meaning to "have a go" with socket programming and have seen a lot of good press on Scott Klement's tutorial at http://www.scottklement.com/rpg/socktut/index.html
Hope it helps
Since there have been no useful responses yet, I'll add another useless one.
<li>You need to transfer data to your AS/400.</li><li>You don't know what you'll be transferring from; it's likely to be different on a regular basis.</li><li>You can't use the only known way to transfer data between different and unknown platforms, i.e., FTP.</li>
I don't know why you can't use FTP. If your boss has dictated it, then tell his/her boss that your boss is nuts and needs to be replaced. Giving you a task and simultaneously restricting you from using the only known method of doing the task is nuts.
