You can get some of the DB2 compliance stuff at www.iseries.ibm.com/db2 - fish
around for the stuff - it's there.

Also, here is something on the architecture, for those porting to the iSeries -
hope you don't need to log in to see it:

1. Comes with the most robust, stable and functional database in the
world (DB2).

I am assuming this compiled list isn't going to used at the next user group
meeting to beat the drum of the already believing but will instead be used
as a tool to justify the existence of the i5 in a shop that is flirting
eradication of the platform and languages. With that said I am going to go
back and review my first response to your post to see how I could further
expound on my entries.

I brought this up to begin with because the above statement means nothing to
somebody that is doing a formal review of the i5 other than it is full of
marketing words. WHY is it the most robust, stable and functional database
in the world?

On the DB2 note I seem to remember hearing a fact that DB2 is the only fully
qualifying SQL ANSI engine - can anybody confirm? Facts like this hold
water IMO.

Just because it's called "Reclaim Storage" instead of "Repair Database"
doesn't mean that it isn't necessary under circumstances.

The two most important reasons:

1. Comes with the most robust, stable and functional database in
the
world (DB2).
2. Does not require a "REPAIR DATABASE" utility.

Any more reasons necessary?

Not sure what I'm going to do with this. My boss has asked me to spend a
little time looking at the benefits of having an i5 over other systems out
today. He is very pro i5 and knows the system is the best, but he thought
it would be good for me to be able to present a list of why the system is as
good as it is.

Not to throw this into a rabbit trail, but are you going to publish the
results in a location that can be updated? I have been wanting to do the
same thing but wanted it to be community driven so it wasn't just on my blog
page. Maybe iSociety and Trevor would be willing to host this list?

Some of my reasons...
- Ability to have a full featured WRKACTJOB to learn of errors, job logs,
call stacks, library lists, spool files, etc.
- Intimately tied RPG to DB2 to i5OS - have yet to see another environment
with the same intimate integration.
- Object security - I can lock down both libraries and IFS folders in a very
secure manner (Would be nice to have a comparison to Windows and Linux done
here)

...Of why the i5 is the best platform available. Reply with your reason you
believe the i5 is the best.



Thanks
