c#.NET Connectivity to AS400 (OS/400)

P: n/a
We need to create a C#.Net data access layer to an AS400 running the OS/400
operating system.

Will someone please tell me where to go and where to start. I have found
some information on an OLEDB component on the Microsoft web site in the Host
Integregation Server documentation but is this overkill.

Suggestions please. If this is wrong newsgroup please advise.

thanks

George,
We need to create a C#.Net data access layer to an AS400 running the OS/400 operating system. If you have Client Access installed you can use its IBMDA400 provider.

Its best to be on Client Access V5R2 or later (with current all PTFs) to be
fully supported from .NET. (I understand that you can remain on an older
OS/400 such as V4R5, its the client that needs to be current).

The above links are from June 3rd, not sure if there are more current
versions with better support...

If you look around the SQL Thing site (http://www.sqlthing.com) and the
above sites you should come across a number of samples and further
information.
Suggestions please. If this is wrong newsgroup please advise.
The microsoft.public.dotnet.framework.adonet newsgroup will provide "better"
ADO.NET support.

Hope this helps
