Open/A for Java provides users
who are creating Java applets the ability to access Clearpath
data via standard SQL. Applets are created on a server and
activated by clients utilizing Java enabled browsers. Upon
activation, the applets will communicate directly with the
Clearpath mainframe through Open/A for Java using the Java DataBase Connectivity (JDBC)TM standard.
Open/A for Java is a native Java
JDBC driver.This allows Java applets as well as Java
applications to access the mainframe data. Since this product is
written totally in Java, you will avoid the performance and
maintenance penalties of the current family of "ODBC-JDBC
bridging" products that are on the market.
As an added advantage, this product connects to the same
mature Clearpath server as Open/A for Windows. If you are a
current Open/A user, all of your current Open/A
configuration files and security settings will immediately be
usable by Open/A for Java.
