CONNX for RMS
CONNX for RMS provides secure, real-time, read/write SQL access to RMS files on all OpenVMS platforms using ODBC OLE DB JDBC and .NET. In conjunction with other CONNX modules, you can perform seamless joins between RMS files and CONNX supported data sources.
With CONNX 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. To the user or application, data appears as if it existed in a single federated relational database.
CONNX performs joins between multiple RMS 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 RMS files.
The CONNX for RMS distributed SQL engine reduces the workload placed on the OpenVMS server by performing CPU intensive operations where the CONNX client resides, while allowing the OpenVMS server to perform tasks for which it is best suited. This distributed SQL engine facilitates truly scaleable application development because of the additional processing power gained by the use of the CONNX client in addition to the OpenVMS server.
CONNX for RMS imports the metadata directly from RMS COBOL copybook, Cognos PDL, Basic, Dibol, CDD and DDL into a CONNX Data Dictionary file (CDD). Once, imported, the target RMS files can be accessed as one or more logical tables or views.
CONNX for RMS also supports OpenVMS Remote Procedure Calls, enabling the reuse of existing business logic, remote execution of batch jobs and procedures.
Add CONNX DataSync and replicate your RMS files to supported data sources without impacting the performance of your RMS files. CONNX DataSync delivers near real-time data synchronization by incrementally updating only those records that have changed.
