I wanted to explore the possibility of sending data from the iSeries to Oracle 9i with the standard software available on the system (i.e. I don't want to invest in any new client software.) What would you suggest?
Your "no extra software" solutions are really limited because Oracle doesn't fully support the Open Group DRDA standard, such as DB2 UDB for iSeries. Your "no software" solutions would be creating an export with the CPYTOIMPF CL command or downloading a Type 4 JDBC Driver for Oracle and then write an iSeries Java application that uses it. More information can be found in the "Heterogeneous Data Access."
