How to Connect EP6 to Legacy Systems like RPG, DB2, AS 400 ?

Hi All,

Being new to portal, have a requirement to build an application in EP6 which requires pulling data from Legacy systems like RPG,DB2,AS 400.

Is there any innovative way to accomplish this in EP6.

    Hi Deepak,

    portal can connect to DB2 atleast - not sure about the others. For connecting to DB2 you will require the JAR file which would give you the API to create the connection and execute the queries of your application. Like other database Jar files - the DB2 jar file is also located in <drive>:\usr\sap\<sys id>\<instance id>\j2ee\cluster\server0\bin\ext\ folder with the name P9db2.jar. I guess you can create a DataSource with the following JARs from this folder in the Visual Admin. The JAR files required would be:

    P9db2.jar, P9base.jar & P9util.jar.

    Once the datasource is created you can use that in your java code for creating connection and firing queries.
