I think this would take what was done using the JDBC interface and externalize it so the application would not know what it's really getting it's data from. If would just need to define the name of the database and execute some SQL commands. No APIs or service programs would be needed in the application itself. I think this would end up working like defining ODBC datasources in Windows. The ODBC datasource knows what it is connecting to and how to connect but the application just knows the name of the datasource.

Subject: Query MySQL from RPG
Would you like to work on a project to make MySQL available directly from
RPG programs on the System i?
Isn't this already possible using JDBC? I know it can be done with MSSQL,
so I assume MySQL would work as well.
