CONNX Codasyl DBMS Data Sheet 

CONNX Products Free Trial 

The CONNX for Oracle Codasyl DBMS module provides secure, real-time, read/write SQL access

to Oracle Codasyl DBMS databases on the VAX, Alpha and HP Integrity servers running OpenVMS. In conjunction with other CONNX modules, you can perform seamless joins between Oracle Codasyl DBMS and most other databases.


Join DBMS with Multiple Data Sources

In conjunction with other products in the CONNX suite, you can perform seamless joins between two or more supported disparate databases using ODBC, OLE DB, .NET and JDBC. CONNX for DBMS access is fast and efficient. 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 frame- work for information access. To the user or application, data appears as if it existed in a single federated relational database.


CONNX supports ANSI SQL (Insert, Up- date, Select, and Delete); group by, distinct, aggregate (AVG, MIN, MAX, SUM, and COUNT), and all substring, string, date, conversion, and math functions.Nested inner and outer left/right joins are supported, as well as subqueries and correlated subqueries. CONNX also supports Unions and Insert/Select.


CONNX supports the creation of views, which facilitate hiding table relation- ships from the end user. CONNX Views facilitate the creation of heterogeneous joins between multiple disparate data- bases.

Data Conversions

CONNX supports over 600 data types and performs bi-directional data conversions for data updates and retrieves.

Popular Program Access

As with all databases supported by CONNX, CONNX for DBMS has been tested with Microsoft Access, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Visual Studio, including Visual Basic/C++, etc.,Delphi, Power-Builder, Impromptu, ReportNET, Lotus Approach, Crystal Reports and vendors such as Cognos and Business Objects. CONNX for DBMS also supports ADO and ASP.NET (Active Server Pages) and JDBC is used with Websphere and Apache Tomcat.

Security Preserved and Extended

The CDD provides additional field and table level encryptable security by group or user, ensuring the security of sensitive information. CONNX also supports row

level security with CONNX Views. Additionally, the CONNX Data Dictionary is encrypted to secure sensitive information.

Command Execution

CONNX provides an RPC (Remote Procedure Call) mechanism that allows remote execution of VMS batch jobs, command procedures and applications from a PC.


Record Definition Imports

CONNX imports tables directly from DBMS Databases.


ODBC Full Compliance (level 2) ; JDBC Type 3 Driver; OLE DB 2.5 Driver; NET 2.0 Driver and above

Table Redefinition

The CONNX Data Dictionary supports multiple record layouts of the same DBMS file, based on a “record type” field.
