We have a need to send report output generated via a Natural program (z/OS) to a web server where it can be stored in a SQL table for dynamic access.
We would like to be able to do this with a minimum of program changes on the Natural side.
I am considering using the XML toolkit to create an XML document and somehow use EntireX to send the XML document to a Java RPC server running on the application server, then use the Java to populate the SQL database.
- Will this work and are there limitations on the size of the XML document? - conceivable the reports could be in the hundreds of pages.
- I don’t like the number of moving parts involved in the above proposal. Is there a cleaner solution you can suggest? We don’t have any of the SAG PC products other than EntireX.
Could XML mediator help at all?
