DBConnect

P: n/a
Hello!

I am searching for Informations about a product called "DBConnect"
from IBM. It should be able to connect an application that is running
on a Windows client with the AS/400 (iSeries). I have heard this
product should be much faster than an ODBC connection. Is that true
and which technology is used? What kind of work has to be done to have
an application (that is using ODBC to access the AS/400 database now)
using the DBConnect tool/product/driver?

Anyone know a good link or have some informations? Thanks in advance!

Best regards
Peter

DB2 Connect is an option, but it's not necessarily faster than an ODBC
connection. In general, the iSeries Access ODBC driver.

If you're having performance problems, than it's probably because the
application & backend database are not tuned or you have an under powered
server. You can find some performance tuning info at:
