... CLI could only connect to databases talking DRDA. With CLI you are dealing with handles, tied to a database connect. You could open multiple connections and call APIs, telling by parameter to wich database your call belongs.

Using embedded SQL, or the other SQL interfaces of AS/400, you could connect to databases talking DRDA and with ArdGate this is enhanced and you could connect to (nearly) all databases of the market. You could open multiple connections and keep them open, similar to CLI. YOu could have multiple connections and one of them is current connection (very similar to current library) and all SQL statemnets without specifying a Connection will go to the current connection. Current Connection is changed by SQL statement set connection (it's no open or close operation involved). With three part names you could "qualify" the server, but this is not the current style of programming with embedded SQL.
