SQL server database Published by: ssammik on 06 Sep 2012 view comments(5)

My company is in the process of getting new software. I have been told to learn how to access the SQL server database from an RPG program. Does anyone have experience with this process. I do not know anything about SQL databases, when I goggle it I get a lot of topics on MySQL but I am not sure if this is the same thing. Thanks for any help.

typically when folks say SQL server, they are referring to Micro$oft's SQL server, which primarily runs on a windows platform. You will see it abbreviated as MSSQL at times.

another means to access the information is through web services. You set up on the server a page that will respond back with the information you need to know. Then from your rpg program, you make a call to that webservice and get back the information. YOu could get it back as xml or as not. Example, when we are doing a phone order, we need to know the amount left on a person's gift card (assuming they are paying with it). So I make a call to a webservice and it returns the amount that is left. That call would be done with software like isockets or brad stone's (www.bvstools.com) geturi tool for example.

I downloaded the code and since I am not familiar with Java I am having trouble understanding some of the code.  Maybe I need to get a Java book, it might help.  Anyway can anyone tell me the difference between programs JDBCTEST3 and JDBCTEST4?  Thanks
