Does anyone know of a query tool that meets the following criteria:
- It runs on the IBM i and can be scheduled by Robot
- It can email results as an Excel spreadsheet
- It can query Microsoft SQL Server 2012 and the native database
- It DOES NOT require manually configuring JDBC?
the last 3 requirements would be met by nearly all JDBC (mostly Java) or
ODBC (mostly .NET) reporting tools. The first requirement might be the show
stopper for most of them, if not all. Another problem might be, if you would
need consolidated reports, originating from multiple diffrent databases. In
this case you would need lots of customizing and a consulting only solution
has its own riscs.
Talking about installation and configuratiuon: configuring JDBC is not so
much difficult (as long as you don't rely on RPG/Java mix). Configuring
ArdGate for instance takes less than an hour and I've never seen any problem
with any java version on any box (and it's running in very diffrent
environments). Compared to the configuration of other database access
methods, JDBC is one of the easiest - mrs. google knows the answer for > 98
% of your JDBC related questions.
