Introduction: 

CA IDMS Server can be used to establish communications with a CA IDMS mainframe CV from any ODBC- or JDBC-compliant platform.

Question: 

Is there a CA IDMS Server ODBC driver package for Unix/Linux ?

Answer: 

As part of the install for CA IDMS Server, we provide an ODBC Driver for IDMS. All ODBC drivers, however, require a Driver Manager. Microsoft provides an ODMC Driver Manager. There is no Driver Manager on a Unix or Linux machine. So we do not provide an ODBC driver for UNIX or Linix.

You can, however, use our JDBC driver on any platform. If you download the Server install from our online support site you will find a JDBC .jar file. That file contains the JDBC driver and can be ported to any JDBC-compliant platform, including UNIX or Linux
