Cool!

This comes in handy from time to time. I've been using Linked Servers with MS SQL Server for this very type of functionality for over a decade. Its good to see it finally coming to the IBM i, just wish native support for reading/writing to remote databases didn't require addon products like ARDGATE. All that's required on the MS SQL side is the OLE DB or ODBC driver for whatever third party database system you want to connect to and voila, you have full access to read/write to that DB.

It's about freaking time!

Which means that with ArdGate...you could read from an MS SQL Server, or Oracle, or whatever and write to DB2 i.

Sweet!

When PTF group 14 for 7.1 becomes available you could now do an insert
with a remote subselect.  Let me rephrase this.  Let's say you did a
CONNECT TO a remote database.  Then you did a select with a cursor.  
You processed that cursor with RPG.  Then you wanted to post that data
locally.  Prior to this enhancement you had to Read with sql Write
with rla (or record level access aka traditional rpg write
statement)
Now with this you can eschew your cursor and read the remote and write
the local database with one simple insert statement.  And if you have
ARDGATE or RazLee's DBGATE that remote database could be SQL Server or
any number of things.
