The CONNX Desktop OLE DB Adapter module provides secure, real-time, read/write access to desktop data- bases such as MS Access, FoxPro, dBase, Approach and Paradox, as well as read access to document files such as MS Excel and delimited text files, enabling them to be integrated with other CONNX supported enterprise data sources. In conjunction with other CONNX modules, you can perform seamless joins between two or more supported, disparate data sources.
Join Desktop 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 Desktop 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.
SQL & CONNX for Desktop
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 cor- related 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 Desktop has been tested with Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Visual Studio, including Visual Basic/C++, etc., Delphi, PowerBuilder, Impromptu, Report- NET, Lotus Approach, Crystal Reports and vendors such as Cognos and Business Objects. CONNX for Desktop also supports ADO and ASP.NET, and JDBC is used with Websphere and Apache Tomcat.
