The CONNX for DB2 Module provides secure, real-time, read/write access to DB2 databases running on MVS, OS/390, z/OS, OS/400, OS/2, Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista/2008, Linux, AIX, HP-UX, and Solaris. In conjunction with other modules in the CONNX suite, you can perform seamless joins between DB2 data and any other supported database. CONNX ODBC DB2 access is fast and efficient.
Join DB2 with Multiple
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, JDBC, and .NET. CONNX for DB2 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 framework for information access. To the user or application, data appears as if it existed in a single federated relational database.
SQL & CONNX for DB2
CONNX supports ANSI SQL (Insert, Update, 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 relationships from the end user. CONNX Views facilitate the creation of heterogeneous joins between multiple disparate databases.
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 DB2 has been tested with Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Visual Studio, including Visual Basic/C++, etc., Delphi, PowerBuilder, Impromptu, ReportNET, Lotus Approach, Crystal Reports and vendors such as Cognos and Business Objects. CONNX for DB2 also supports ADO and ASP.NET (Active Server Pages) and JDBC is used with Websphere and Apache Tomcat.

Security Preserved and Extended
The CONNX Data Dictionary 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.
The CONNX Data Dictionary supports multiple record layouts of the same DB2 files, based on a “record type” field.
Record Definition Import
CONNX imports table definitions directly from DB2 Databases.
