Yes, GenRocket can generate data and output data to mainframes in the required format via GenRocket's fourth component a GenRocket Receiver. A GenRocket Receiver morphs generated data into a specific output format. A GenRocket Receiver doesn't know that it's delivering its formatted data to a mainframe or a PC; it only knows that it's supposed to deliver the data in its specific format to a given destination; that destination can be anything that can receive and use the formatted data. Here are two basic examples:
- Mainframes that use VSAM (Virtual Storage Access Method) method for storing and retrieving files, the GenRocket FixedFileReceiver would most likely be used to output the generated data.
- Any mainframe that contains a database that can be accessed via JDBC (Java Database Connectivity) can receive generated data, in real-time, via our GenRocket GenericSQLInsertReceiver, which can connect directly to a database via JDBC even if it is on a mainframe.
