CONNX for C-ISAM
The CONNX for C-ISAM module provides secure, real-time, read/write access to C-ISAM data sources on Windows, Solaris, HP-UX, AIX, Linux and other UNIX flavors. In conjunction with other CONNX modules, you can perform seamless joins between C-ISAM and most other databases.
With CONNX for C-ISAM, a single metadata model can be created that spans all enterprise data sources and applications requiring data access. The result is an enterprise-wide view of data that provides a reusable, standards-based framework for information access.
CONNX performs joins between multiple C-ISAM files using a single SQL statement, otherwise impossible without custom development, and simplifies manipulation of large arrays through its unique Rotated Array Technology. The CONNX distributed SQL engine uses advanced index optimization to ensure maximum performance when retrieving data from C-ISAM files.
The CONNX for C-ISAM distributed SQL engine reduces the workload placed on the server by performing CPU-intensive operations where the CONNX client resides (Unix, Linux or Windows. i.e., remote desktop, Web and/or application server). This distributed SQL engine facilitates truly scalable application development because of the additional processing power gained by the use of the client machine in addition to the database server.
CONNX for C-ISAM imports the metadata directly from C-ISAM COBOL copybook into a CONNX Data Dictionary (CDD). Once, imported, the target C-ISAM file can be treated as one or more logical tables or views.
