Actually, the price has already gone down...Based upon the interest we've
seen at COMMON, we've decided that for a yet-to-be-determined period,
DB-Gate can be purchased beginning at $3K, depending on the system and
number of database connections.

Well, with two players in that market; Ardgate and DBGate, maybe the price
will go down. Maybe enough that IBM would do that. Maybe the fear of that
will be enough for them to race each other to IBM to propose just that. Just
keep enough pressure on IBM so that they don't insult them so much they both
tell IBM no deal.

Charles, I agree.
And if IBM has any game left for i, I think they should do just that.
My thought is for IBM to pay handsomely for rights to the code and get
this done asap.
In my experience, ArdGate support of STRSQL is a valuable feature
I did not see in the other solutions I have used/am using.

Yeah, expect that IBM provides the Windows OLEDB or ODBC driver for DB2...
MS doesn't bother to provide an IBM i driver for MS SQL Server...
Oracle does, but you have pay big $$$ (30K last time I checked) to get it
as part of their "Transparent Gateway" product...
The only thing IBM could have done (and probably should have) would have
been to build the JDBC<-->DRDA bridge that ArdGate provides.

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.
