[Quoted] Well, we solved a similar problem with DB2/400 using one of Oracle's Transparent Gateways. A pricely solution, but it makes your DB2 look like [Quoted] another Oracle database to the outside, and allows you to do all kinds of [Quoted] neat things, like creating snapshots, table links into the DB2 from your [Quoted] Oracle, queries, etc. A very, very nice and clean solution from our experience. Be warned, this was a $18k product for DB2/400, so I imagine [Quoted] it's not any better (and probably more expensive) on the S/390.
