Deploying dynamic data to the web

Net.Data provides the connectivity to dynamic data that can make your Web site stand out from the crowd! Using Net.Data, you can build Web applications with data from a variety of data sources. Your web applications will have the power of all of the data in your enterprise.

With Net.Data, your Web application users can get your company's most current corporate information on demand. Maybe it's a complete directory of product information for your company. Perhaps it's a list of inventory, prices, and delivery times to which a mobile sales force can refer during sales calls. Whatever form the information takes, it's business-critical data for your company, so it must be up to date and current.

With live connectivity to your databases, you can make interactive Web sites and electronic commerce a reality. For example, catalog merchandisers can provide their pricing and product information at any time, as well as collect ordering information from their customers. Hotels and airlines can allow guests to book rooms and flights from the comfort of their homes, using their favorite Web browsers. Start using Net.Data and the result will be the most compelling Web applications you've ever seen!

High performance connectivity to dynamic data

Application performance is vital to your customers, so naturally you want your Web applications to be great performers. With Net.Data, your application can achieve your high performance goals. Net.Data can accomplish this as it provides numerous optimizations to speed the delivery of enterprise data to your Web application.

Net.Data can access a wide range of data sources, including DB2 Database and programs. Net.Data's direct access means data can be delivered to your Web application lightning fast.

Net.Data is sophisticated, and manages the connections to your relational databases for optimum performance. Net.Data establishes a continuous connection to specified databases (see illustration above). Net.Data maintains the connection throughout the Web application as well as across invocations of Web applications. Since the database connections are continuous, the application does not experience the overhead of a connect and subsequent disconnect from the database. The result is peak performance of your interactive Web application.

Use existing business logic to Web-enable client/server applications

With Net.Data, you can enable your existing business logic to turn your client/server applications into Web applications. Net.Data supports calls to RPG, Cobol, C/C++, and REXX applications.

Rapid development of Internet and intranet applications

Net.Data features macro capabilities, including conditional logic and variable substitution for more flexible application development. Net.Data applications can contain INCLUDE files, for sharing of application components and dynamic linking between Web pages. Net.Data also has built-in functions for operating system calls and general purpose functions.
