Help Product Information - Information Integrator for SyBase to UDB Migration

P: n/a
Need product information on IBM's Integration Integrator (I.I) for
conversion of SyBase calls to UDB calls. Production allows for
conversion of modules one-by-one and then when all modules are
converted the database (SyBase) can be converted and I.I removed.

Last I heard the product was in beta.

Any information would be appreciated...

See

http://www-306.ibm.com/software/data..._standard.html

But the description of your requirements is a bit vague. What do you
need II to do? It will not provide migration capabilities for Sybase
calls into DB2 calls. It WILL provide transparency that allows an
application to "address" a Sybase database as if it was a DB2 database.
This product has been generally available since 2004 and it's
predecessor (with much of the same core technology) has been available
since 1995, I believe.

Thanks for your quick response. Sorry for being so vague, but in
brief, we have two dozen applications calling Stored Procedures to
access a SyBase database. Converting each one of the applications and
Stored Procedures will take our departments months. To avoid freezing
of new enhancements during this extended time we are looking for a
solution that will support a mixed environment during the migration
period.

What we want is a product that will provide transparency for the
applications that have already migrated (i.e. "address" a Sybase
database as if it was a DB2 database) allowing us time to complete the
modifications to the application and stored procedures while keeping
the SyBase database until the last application is converted.


P.S. - Not sure I understand the link you provided. It reference
IBM's WebSphere product. We are looking for a DB2 UDB solution. Can
you please clarify my lack of understanding.

Thanks

1. The II product will provide the capability to address a Sybase db as
if it were a DB2 database, however, I'm not sure if it will surface
Sybase stored procs (I know it can surfact Sybase T-SQL, but not sure
about within a stored proc). You'll need to confirm this.

2. The II product has been rebranded as Websphere II. This is because it
really does perform middleware functionality and IBM's middleware is
really covered under the Websphere brand.
