IBM DB2 to mySQL RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi,

    is there any adapter which can help me communicate to my business partner?

    I'm using IBM DB2, BizTalk and Windows Server 2003.

    my business partner is using Linux Web server, Java J2EE platform application, mySQL.

    Thanks in advance,

  • Hi,


    In cases where you are looking at database-to-database integration, you could consider using SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) in SQL Server 2005 or 2008. BizTalk can be used in these types of scenarios, but sometimes it's better to go with SSIS. It might be worth invesitng a day or two in exploring this.


    If you do take the BizTalk path, you could look at the Microsoft BizTalk Adapters for Host Systems for the DB2 connection:


    As for mySQL, you may be able to use a third-party ODBC adapter, or it may be an option to integrate with web services on the J2EE side. If you are using BizTalk 2006R2, you should look at using the WCF adapters rather than the SOAP adapter for calling services. They have evolved a lot since the SOAP adpater.
