Sterling Connect:Direct Application Interface for Java support to iSeries C:D version

CDJAI support all other platforms (Windows, Unix, ZOS and Tandem) except iSeries. This limitation restricts users to automate C:D configuration through CDJAI, similar to what we do in other platforms. Now we have to login to iSeries machine to do that configuration. But with CDJAI support, we could complete the config remotely. To maintain uniformity please enable CDJAI support for iSeries C:D versions.

How will this idea be used?

We will use CDJAI to remotely complete the C:D configuration without even login to iSeries servers. With this we can develop the same automation approach across all platforms.

What is your industry? Banking
What is the idea priority? Urgent

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM.  I have reviewed it with my team in detail, but unfortunately we have not seen much interest in C:D JAI support for the iSeries platform.  I will leave the Idea open for a while to see if it receives a significant amount of votes.  That would indicate that the broader market is looking for this functionality and would weigh into our decision on if this should be accepted or rejected.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM.  I have reviewed it with my team and allowed it to sit for a while to gauge market interest.  Unfortunately I didn't see broad market interest so I'll need to decline this request.  We do appreciate your request, but unfortunately I need to weigh the enhancement requests that we receive against available resources to ensure our efforts benefit the market as a whole.
