Migration from Net.Data

P: n/a
Hi folks,

Do you remember an old product working with DB2 V6.1 (LUW) : Net.Data ?

This product has been discontinuated in 2004, and it is said that we should
use Websphere App Server. Now, migrating thru export/import the db2 database
to version 9.1, has someone migrated in the past from Net.Data to WAS and
would give me some recomandations ?

Should I use Java + WAS or prefer Zend Core and PHP, that seems closer to me
from Net.Data ?

Regards,

JM

I did quite a bit of work with Net.Data and, while Zend Core & PHP may
be closer in approach to what your are used to; there can be significant
performance issues if your net.data code was not designed to minimize
database activity.

I'd opt for Websphere and Java if possible.

We were using Net.Data to render simple result sets to web pages and
so opted for 2 techniques:
* Perl/CGI scripting (simple, but not very elegant)
* JSP with JSTL (Java Standard Tag Library) for database access (this
allowed us to replace Net.Data with very simple JSPs without the
"overhead" of MVC/servlet programming. Very nice for simple "data
window" type applications, but not recommended for transaction
processing or business logic applications)

Hope this helps.

We are also currently on Net.Data and wish to move on to some other
platform. Currently considering Java/jsp or velocity macros. but
nothing final yet.

Thanks all for your comments. Well, it appears that there is no automatic
transcoding to something else ... Has anybody tried Net.Data with DB2 9.1 or
DB2 8.2 ?

Thanks,

Jean-Marc

we are presently on Net.Data (running on NT4) with DB2 8.2 on x64
W2K3. ;)

there are certain hiccups sometimes, but i would attribute them more
with WinNT than with Net.Data. However, the sad part is that our
Net.Data does not understand W2K or W2K3.
