Can Tibco pull a file from mainframes.

Post by RyanFox » Mon Nov 20, 2017 9:50 am


We have a system in which mainframes sends the file to SAP. SAP does not get in directly instead there is an FTP server given to us in production for Tibco where we send the file. This system has not been touched for many many years. Now for a requirement we need to test of sending a file in test region but no one from Tibco and SAP knows the test FTP server path. We've been asking it old timers here but it's taking time but we shall soon get this information.

But we thought is it a possibility that Tibco itself takes the file from mainframe. Is it possible to do this?

why ask on a forum, wouldn' t it be simpler/faster to ask TIBCO :?:

When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort 8-)

Technically it's doable as far as I know. But most of the times zOS box will FTP the data-set to a path given by TIBCO and TIBCO would pick the data-set from there then...
