Developer Solutions Announces DB2 Motion: a new product from HiT Software that replicates IBM iSeries and AS/400 application data to Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle application environments Monday 26 November 2001 PDF Print 21 November 2001 (DS0125) ~ Developer Solutions, the application development specialist, is now shipping DB2 Motion from HiT Software. DB2Motion replicates IBM iSeries and AS/400 application data to Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle application environments. SQL Server and Oracle developers have tools to import bulk data but no simple tool for near real-time mirroring of iSeries changes. To date, these developers have been forced to choose between high cost replication suites or developing their own solution. By delivering a focused iSeries platform solution, DB2Motion offers the first low-cost, forward replication solution. Available from Developer Solutions, prices start from £3995 + VAT. DB2Motion supports OS/400 V3R1 and later, Windows NT 4.0 and later, SQL Server 6.5 and later, and Oracle 7.0 and later. Visit http://www.developer-solutions.co.uk for full details and to obtain an evaluation copy. "We see our iSeries and AS/400 SQL middleware customers developing OS/400 journal-based replication because no simple solution has been offered," said Adrian Handley general Manager at Developer Solutions "DB2Motion addresses these requirements and quickly yields companies a high return on their projects." DB2Motion is designed to be easy to use and minimally intrusive for the OS/400 environment. It allows only forward replication to external servers and therefore prevents any iSeries database update. DB2Motion does not require any programming on the iSeries server or on the destination database server. The DB2Motion Enterprise Manager graphical user interface runs on a Windows client and allows administration functions. Wizards allow administrators to define destination SQL Server or Oracle tables. Commonly used replication and transformation functions are provided. Replication criteria is based on iSeries tables and subsequently monitored via the OS/400 journal. DB2Motion includes Windows and iSeries application code. Through its distributed architecture, DB2Motion significantly reduces replication load on the iSeries server. For advanced requirements, DB2Motion supports all native VBScript functions to enable users to monitor and respond to replication events in detail. Users may define their own functions, variables, and constants for more complex data transformations. About Developer Solutions Formed in 2001, Developer Solutions was a division of Contemporary Plc.
