Net.Data is a server-side scripting language that extends web servers by enabling the dynamic generation of web pages that use data from various data sources. The data sources can include relational and nonrelational database management systems such as DB2, DRDA-enabled databases, flat-file data, and native applications written in programming languages such as RPG, Cobol, Java, C, C++, and REXX.
High-performance connectivity to dynamic data
Manages the connections to relational databases for optimum performance.
Establishes a continuous connection to specified databases.
Maintains the connection throughout the web application as well as across invocations of web applications.
Rapid development of Internet and intranet applications
No recompilation is required.
Use existing business logic to web-enable client/server applications
Scripting language contains built-in functions that enable easy performance of such tasks as sending emails, manipulating cookies, and so on.
Shipped with data connectors called language environments allowing retrieval of data from various sources including databases such as Db2.
Enables existing business logic to turn client/server applications into web applications.
Supports calls to RPG, Cobol, C/C++, and REXX applications.
Except for releases that are no longer supported, PTFs listed in the table can have been superseded by other PTFs (see releases that are no longer supported).
The list of PTFs does not include group PTFs that affect the functionality of Net.Data. Group PTFs are normally released every 1 - 3 months and contain a group of PTFs that are tested together in a packaged method. You should always load the latest group PTFs for database and HTTP server before going through the following list.
