    Best I can suggest - contact the database vendor directly. They might know of one.

    You could create your own but only if you can find an internet protocol that would work and are willing to spend the time to do it.

    You could also talk to www.datadirect.com. Their core business is creating jdbc drivers. They don't have your data source listed but maybe I just couldn't find it. If nothing else maybe you get lucky and they provide more information which makes it clear whether a type 4 driver could even exist for that.

    thanks

    I contacted datadirect ...on their site only DB2 is listed for Mainframe

    I can found drivers here
    https://origin-myca.ca.com/web/guest/admin;jsessionid=C26EE53A19F3E25A48F90C50C8018143.usilap720?contentID=a3039149-5d20-4dec-891c-8c29bd76cb36&enableBackLink=true

    but they didn't allow direct connection
    You will need a proxy server with CCI running on windows

    I have been told that may be Oracle JDBC stuff can help .. cannot find how to contact them

    How to contact who? Oracle? There is a "contact us" link at the bottom of the site.

    I suggest you phone them or email them directly.

    I doubt that.

    You are looking for a driver and specific type of driver.
    Oracle doesn't create a driver, of any type, for that data source.
    Oracle has a list somewhere of jdbc drivers however I suspect google is a better source.

    Oracle does not offer or certify any JDBC driver for CA datacom. It is almost guaranteed that there is no JDBC access to that product except as delivered by the producer of that product.
