Re: RPG2SQL - is there something in WebSphere that will do the same thing?



fixed

Hi Tom,

From your post it sounds as if you are only querying the MySQL database
interactively. If this is the case then the QuantumDB plugin should provide
you with what you need.

I have only used it with Wdsc 7 but I have seen threads that also mention
using it with Rdp. There is also a data perspective in Rdp that I heard is
much improved but I don't have any first hand experience with Rdp.

We've been using RPG2SQL for 5 years, very happily I might add. After the
first year, "The Power that Is" decided to let the maintenance on RPG2SQL
lapse. We're now about to purchase a new iSeries and upgrade some of our
PCs. This will require that we re-purchase the RPG2SQL license, or pay a
rather steep cost + penalty to maintenance up to date. TPtI is not happy.

The iSeries side of RPG2SQL will submit an SQL-type of query to a remote
server (PCs running MySQL, in our case), the client software on the PC will
capture that request, perform the SQL retrieval from the MySQL database and
return the results to the iSeries. RPG2SQL is capable of much more, but
this is how we use it; not much else is needed.

I've been tasked with finding an alternative within WebSphere - is there?
