Issue/Introduction

Using a JDBC Type 4 connection from Linux does not connect to the mainframe Datacom Server.

The connection attempt hangs until it times out. There are no error messages on the mainframe.

 

 

Cause

The JDBC Type 4 connection string is using the ApplicationID= parameter, it must instead use the ServerName= parameter.

Environment

Release : 15.0

Component : CA DATACOM SERVER

Resolution

The connections string for a JDBC Type 4 connection has the following format:

jdbc:datacom://<hostname>:<hostport>/ServerName=,UserID=,Password=

ServerName must match the SERVERNAME= parameter in the mainframe Datacom Server startup.

hostport must match the TCPIP_PORT= parameter in the mainframe Datacom Server startup.
