RDB Connect

Give your IBM i full SQL access to remote databases from all IBM i high-level languages. RDB Connect is a collection of commands and functions allowing record-level access to remote data using RPG, CL or COBOL. Programmers can write applications that use standard types and features without concern for the specifics of each remote database. Likewise, database driver implementers need only know how to attach to the core library. RDB Connect will run on an IBM i V5R4M0 and above. It requires an IP connection to the remote server that is running the database that you want to access.
