Yes. The IBM version is in QSYS. Just for grins, I logged onto one of
their
customer machines. It appears IBM got after them, because there is a new
command, RUNSQLxxx, that is now being used by their software.

It was placed there this summer. :-))

Does this end up as a part of qsys library list.

You must be joking. The owner thinks he walks on water. The ironic thing
is
that they forced their customers to upgrade to V7 to take advantage of
some
new bell or whistle that I can't recall right now.

Last Friday, the CFO sent me a note saying he'd like to take advantage
of
something he had found in the documentation about importing PO
information
from spreadsheets via the IFS. I spent half a day setting it up and
placing
some test data into the specified folder. He then modified the data and
wanted to try the import according to the documentation. He kept getting
an
"Invalid Path Specified" message. I pointed out that everything was
correct,
and maybe he should call the vendor. Here is the response he received:

"xxx said this process was a mod for someone and was never supposed to
be
released on the latest service pack and this process will probably never
be
finished and on it will probably be gone on the next service pack
update.
They did say that we could submit a ticket as a modification referencing
this ticket #1216092 and they would finish this for a fee."

The sad thing is that this vendor can get away with this crap because
the
customers who want to stay on this platform have nowhere else to go. All
of
the other vendors are gone, except one who got bought by a PC package
company and only provides updates like W2's and such. They won't even
sell
the package to somebody who wants to be on our platform.

They should subscribe and participate in this list. I think we red
flagged the hell out of that situation.

And, they might consider participating in the early ship program. So
they
find out before their customers.

Subscribing to some of the news on Developer Works is also a great idea.

I am so tired of vendors who drag their feet on upgrading OS and keeping
current with PTF's.

Just a little side note.

There is a construction software company based in Phoenix who has its
own
version of the RUNSQL command. They were caught by surprise by IBM, and
have
made all its customers rename the command until they get around to
fixing
their software.

Sheesh.
