iSecurity DB-Gate empowers IBM i customers with exciting data access capabilities, based on Open Database Connectivity (ODBC), employing standard IBM i facilities to enable fully database-transparent access to remote systems.
Using native SQL on the IBM i, users can connect to specific files on DB2 and non-DB2 remote databases without any special hardware or software on the remote DB.
From interactive STRSQL and from any standard program in RPG, Cobol, C, or other languages, access is now easier and more natural than ever.
How Does iSecurity DB-Gate Work? – So simply that you don’t need anything else.
iSecurity DB-Gate can work in “Server Mode” as either an Internal or External server
Internal Server: A server subsystem needs to be started
External Server: Removes load from the IBM i when installed and started from a PC
In both cases iSecurity DB-Gate enables transparent access to any database (MySQL, ORACLE, MS SQL, DB2, Informix, SQLite or other) or data source (e.g., Excel)
The Database or data source could reside on any IBM or non-IBM platform using STRSQL, STRQM or programs in languages such as RPG, COBOL, etc. (compiled using CRTSQLxxx)
DRDA (Distributed Relational Database Architecture), which only connects DB2-like databases, limits the possibility of accessing databases that support JDBC, one of the most common methods for inter-system data access.
iSecurity DB-Gate Expands IBM i-based DRDA functionality enabling transparent connectivity with JDBC databases which support DRDA.
Based on Clients Experience
Business Vertical: Manufacturing.
Need: Replacement for Oracle Access Manager.
“DB-Gate functions well on our IBM i with 64- bit JVM…The one thing that I always admire about DB-Gate is the support which customers receive and which is much better than even Oracle supplied when we worked with Oracle Access Manager…”
The company uses DB-Gate to perform their warehouse management functions between Oracle and IBM i ensuring transparent transaction flow between the two systems.
