I'm not sure what you were quoted, but we're usually flexible when it comes to renewing maintenance.

Subject: RPG2SQL - is there something in WebSphere that will do the
Sent by: midrange-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx
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
capture that request, perform the SQL retrieval from the MySQL database
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?
