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

"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

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.
