Mapper and Java (WebSphere Portal)

Mapper and Java (WebSphere Portal)

Mapper and Java (WebSphere Portal)

I am looking for some way to access the data in Mapper via Java (specifically for IBM WebSphere Portal).

I've heard there is an ODBC driver, but empirical results (reported to me) are that the performance is rather sluggish and can bring down an 8.1 server.

Any suggestions or insight?



RE: Mapper and Java (WebSphere Portal)

You might want to try a cool-ice interface.  If you do not know, cool-ice is mapper for the web.  This has been implemented in the latest release, earlier releases were a seperate product.  This runs only on NT and you can use ASP and Java to access Mapper data.  

What release are you using?


RE: Mapper and Java (WebSphere Portal)

It can be done, but you need to have Mapper Level 45 OS200 or Mapper 9.1 or better.

There is a run in the new mapper called OTBL which you use to setup the table for SQL access.



RE: Mapper and Java (WebSphere Portal)

That depends on which BIS (MAPPER) server to which you are connecting.

BIS-2200 45R1 has an inbound Java interface. You can read about it in the "BIS RA for the Java Platform User Guide": 38508156-000.

Rumor has it that BIS-NT 10.1 will also provide a similar Java inbound interface. But that release has not yet begun beta testing.

BIS-NT 9.1 and above supports inbound and outbound COM. You can contact CIBER to get a copy of the Unite presentation "BIS and COM Revisted": norm.kvern@ciber-az.com.
