what is it that you are looking for specifically?The only difference in using Mainframe is you create JCL's (which are more like shell scripts) that call the contro members (which are the bteq, Mload, or Fload etc)This is when you place your scripts in production / test.but for regular querying we use windows environment sql assistant.

You should know how to write JCL(if you see sample scripts u can understand),how to run the job and how to see job run details and error codes.Some times you may require using GDG's(files).

Are you looking to do application development on a mainframe or run Teradata utilities?
