In this book, you will learn about Structured Query Language (SQL), but with an IBM eServer i5/iSeries twist. The future seems clear on this point: SQL is the direction of the future for IBM's Universal Database. While it is true that the majority of existing databases on the i5 and iSeries were created with DDS, it is still undeniable that DDS will slowly fade from use, much like the RPG program cycle.
With a practical "how-to" style, SQL for eServer i5 and iSeries first introduces you to the basics essential for any developer to build a solid foundation. Then the book examines--in detail--the many ways in which SQL functions on the iSeries. All possible environments are explored: the traditional 5250 green-screen applications, the SQL scripting tool within iSeries Navigator, and the methods of accessing iSeries databases from within Visual Basic.
Learn through real-life examples of using SQL to interact with DB2 databases. Discover the ins and outs of sub-selects, joins, unions, and views, as well as tips and techniques for interacting with legacy applications and so much more. Though the book is intended for programmers already familiar with SQL, beginners will appreciate the book's handy tutorial Appendix to get started with SQL basics.
After reading this book, you will see that the i5/iSeries platform is far more than the green-screen application server it is often perceived as and that it is indeed one of the finest systems available for use as a business server today. Make your database access cutting-edge with SQL for eServer i5 and iSeries.
