I hope for your company's sake they listen to your bias <smile>.

Joe, have you done any testing to see if your stuff is as fast, faster,
whatever, compared to SQL?
Not a lot, but I don't need a lot.  Other than the magic of stored procedures
(which I'm not too familiar with, but the last time I looked was pretty
non-portable), there's just no way SQL can match up to native AS/400 database
I/O for true transactional stuff.  It's great for queries, hence it's name, but
it's lousy for transaction processing (which is probably why it's called "SQL"
rather than "STPL").

Anyway, a simple inconclusive test:

Inserting 10000 records into a file consisting of two L-dates and a character

SQL:      17 seconds
Native:   2 seconds

There's no contest.
