The CONNX for Micro Focus module provides secure, real-time, read/write access to Micro Focus 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 Micro Focus and any other supported database.
With CONNX for Micro Focus, 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.
The CONNX for Micro Focus 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 Micro Focus supports the creation of views, which facilitates hiding table relationships from the end user. CONNX views facilitates the creation of heterogeneous joins between multiple disparate databases.
CONNX for Micro Focus imports the metadata directly from COBOL copybooks and a CONNX Text Specification file format into a CONNX Data Dictionary file (CDD). Once, imported, the target Micro Focus file can be treated as one or more logical tables or views.
