Using JDBC with PROC SQL in z/OS batch or TSO

We have the JDBC driver for MS SQL installed on z/OS (In a Unix Systems Services directory of course) and have used it successfully from within another query tool  to access MS SQL data on z/OS.   What can I do to enable using this JDBC driver in PROC SQL or a LIBNAME in the same way as we use DB2?  It is entirely in Java and apparently uses no JNDI because we downloaded the .jar directly from Microsoft and didn't have to change anything for it to work. 

Seems like PROC SQL could use JDBC but I haven't had a lot of luck finding documentation on how to do it - searching for SAS+JDBC or "PROC SQL"+JDBC returns information about the SAS JDBC drivers which seem upon reading to provide JDBC access to SAS.

Hi @TimH

 

Right now there is no SAS/ACCESS Interface to JDBC. You may be able to get PROC GROOVY to work. Take a look at this SGF paper from Lilyanne Zhang.

Accessing DBMS with the GROOVY Procedure and a JDBC Connection

 

Best wishes,

Jeff
