iWay Software's Intelligent Adapter for Model 204 – SQL, JDBC, ODBC, and XML-Based Enterprise Integration
Accelerating Model 204 Integration
iWay Software's intelligent Model 204 adapter provides highly efficient access to Model 204 data and systems. The adapter is engineered in the same way as other iWay data adapters, so developers may use ANSI-standard SQL statements to access Model 204 data from any iWay tool. Third-party products can also access the adapter via iWay connectors, including ODBC, OLE DB, JDBC, XML, iWay Business Services (Web services), and others. In addition, data may be integrated with more than 300 other information sources, including other relational and nonrelational databases, transaction systems, custom or packaged applications, message-oriented middleware, XML documents, EDI networks, and more.
How iWay Intelligent Data Adapters Work Together
All iWay Intelligent Adapters are designed for consistent operation within iWay's robust middleware framework, thereby minimizing the skill sets required to use each database and support new projects. Each adapter consists of a communications interface, an SQL translator that manages adapter operations in either SQL or iWay's universal Data Manipulation Language (DML), and a database interface that translates ANSI SQL into native API calls. Multiple iWay adapters running on the same platform can all share communications and translation components for greater efficiency.
Highly Optimized for Model 204
The iWay Intelligent Adapter for Model 204 receives ANSI-standard SQL requests and translates them into iWay's universal DML. These DML statements are used to access the target database using Model 204 IFAM calls to retrieve data targeted in the request. If required, the adapter will generate the appropriate iWay SQL and DML statements to perform cross-database joins with other data sources.
Special features and settings for iWay's Model 204 Adapter include:
- Optimized IFAM calls to maximize data retrieval performance
- Support for most commonly used data types, including character and packed data
- Advanced interface tracing facility to display HLI calls and return codes
- Specification of multiple account ids and passwords within the same session
- Native implementation as an application level IFAM2 program
- Support for dynamic specification of CRAM channel name
- Ability to describe multiple occurring fields
Special iWay Performance Features
The iWay Adapter directly provides query control via the RECORDLIMIT feature to reduce communication traffic, CPU usage, and I/O activity. iWay's Resource Analyzer and Resource Governor products may also be used to analyze and control resources on a global basis independently of the adapter being used.
