Workspace QMF for z/OS
Created by Guest
Created on Aug 5, 2023

Use IDMS available JDBC driver to allow QMF connect and access/update data in IDMS using SQL through SQL server feature of IDMS (v19)

Using IDMS JDBC driver and IDMS SQL server feature (instead of QMF data services) to access IDMS data has the following advantages:

1- Much easier and straight forward setup.

2- No additional components (QMF data services) are required to run on z/OS image, which save z/OS resources.

3- Using IDMS SQL server feature will allow QMF to do both query and update SQL statements on IDMS data, where using QMF data services allow only for SQL query (no update).
