Re: Remote Dataq with NT



fixed


   Booth, 

        Your response confuses me !  How and Why would one use a batch
 process (FTP) to replace a real time process (DataQueue).  With remote
 DataQueues I can transfer in neartime, if not realtime, a single record
 to trigger the interfaced hardware with little or no AS/400 code, and 
 some basic API coding on the NT System.  While I agree that batch FTP 
 is great to send a batch of something for processing it really does 
 not fit the enviroment I will be working in. 

        FYI: This is a Bar Code creation and read/process application, 
 which is why the near/real time requirment. 

        Thanks, 
        Jeff
