DB2 Communication

DB2 Communication
We are developing an application that will communicate across LPARS to different
DB2 subsystems. What is the best way to do this? Is DDF and LU 6.2 our only
option?
Any information would be appreciated.

Its certainly one way. But you've got my interest so
I'll bite and ask the obvious question. Why not use
DB2 data sharing? Its designed to facilitate this
communication easily.

Data Sharing is not an option for us right now. We have to use what we have in
place.

TCP/IP is a fairly obvious alternative to SNA, then if you don't use
Data Sharing, and you're running at least DB2 V5 and OS/390
V2R5 (for the performance, V2R4 is ok, V1R3 is only for light work).

You didn't say why you want an alternative. There are non-DB2
types of connections, like MQ.

We are trying to determine what would be the fastest. MQ was mentioned and if
nothing else is avaliable MQ will be it. We are running DB2 V5 OS/390 5.2.

A faster option than MQ is a client using Db2 connect calling cics program
via EXCI. It's about twice as fast as MQ. Not sure what you are trying to
do though. HTH Phil
