How do I get an evaluation copy of ...
Evaluation copies of our software are available from our FTP site.
Simply click on the word "Download" in the menu on the left and
respond to the brief questions.
I'm looking for a package to connect an MS
SQL database to a Linux system using a c/c++ library, an SGI machine
using a c/c++ library, and to connect any Web browser via JDBC to a
Our VORTEX products will do this for you. VORTEX++ is a C++
class library that accesses VORTEXserver, which connects
to the various databases we support. VORTEXjdbc is a
Type 3 driver. Check out the product
list page for links to the product pages.
We want to use a 4GL tool to build applications that access
an Ingres database both from local clients and via the Web. For
Web access, we can assume only that clients have browser software.
Is ODBC for Ingres on Unix/Solaris a good choice?
We do have an ODBC layer but experience shows that ODBC is overly
complex for almost any application and therefore you pay a
performance penalty. Other, more direct, connections are available
with Trifox products.
I know this is a big ask, but what about Stored Procedures ? Any
way to support procedure calls ?
We support stored procedures using our 4GL called PL/TRIM. It is DBMS
independent, runs on all platforms from PCs to mainframes, and does much more
than simply DBMS access. All of our client interfaces, including JDBC, call
use it because it looks like just another DBMS data source.
Where is the documentation for your products?
All published documentation is listed in the
online library and most of it available for download from our
These documents are generally compressed (gzipped) PostScript files,
so you can print them. If you don't have access to a PostScript printer,
we can make hardcopy manuals available for evaluation.
Well, what about support?
Aside from our guarantee
that we fully support site evaluations, maintenance and bug support
is included in all products' purchase price.
We need to migrate an MVS-based DB2 system to an HP/UX-based
ORACLE system. The workstations run under Windows. Can you help?
TRIMqmr is functionally compatible with
version 2 of IBM's QMF. The PROCs qnd SQL queries will be importable.
We also have a native connection (via TCP/IP) from NT to MVS.
