Host Integration Server demoes on Channel9

Filed under: Database — patrickyong @ 12:00 pm

The dudes in Host Integration Server team showcase how a whole Microsoft development stack (SQL Server, ADO.NET, Visual Studio) can be used to program against IBM z/OS or AS/400 without additional installtion on both the host and the client side. You just need Host Integration Server 2006 in a box. It is indeed a far cry where by last time I had a website to connect to a AS/400 server using only OCBC calls but then we do not have transaction support.

The coolest thing is there is even a project wizard with VS2005 to code generate .NET objects based on definition on the IBM host. ๐Ÿ™‚ So no need to go back to RPG or COBOL or ask the host guy which is very hard to deal with sometimes to get the data you want. ๐Ÿ˜‰
