IBM i CMS that supports tables with OmniFind indexes built over them



I'm curious as to rather or not any of the IBM i CMS vendors support
OmniFind Text Search Server for DB2 for i(5733-OMF optional part of the OS
available at 6.1 and higher)

When you create an OmniFind text index over a column in a table, Omnifind
creates 4 library objects..

An SQL View (*FILE LF) and 3 SQL triggers (*PGM) over the indexed table.

There's a couple gotchas for CMS vendors,
1) The source for the view requires a qualified SQL table name, example:

call sysproc/systs_create('MYLIB','TEXTIDX'


2) The triggers are "system triggers" and trying to retrieve the SQL source
for them results in:

SQL150A 10 System trigger QDBTS_DQDBTS_STAGING_000_5000 in MYLIB

As an FYI: the actual "text index" is in the IFS.

So, has anybody with a CMS had any luck integrating OmniFind?

I'll start the off the list. The current (v7.7) of Aldon LM(i) does not
support OmniFind.
