ASNA Publishes ASNA Database Toolbox 4.7 for AS/400 and NT/2000
- By Scott Bekker
ASNA Technology announced version 4.7 of its ASNA Database Toolbox (ADBTB) for AS/400. The ADBTB provides AS/400 record-level access for virtually all Windows development environments including Virtual Basic, Visual C++, and Delphi. ADBTB 4.7 also includes a set of Java classes to provide AS/400 record-level access for Java programmers.
New features in ADBTB 4.7 include full support for AS/400 open query files; print files and print preview, in which programmers can create Windows-based reports which can be viewed in print preview and can be printed on any Windows printer; and a programmer file editor, including a full add/update/delete capable file editor called ADBFEdit.
The ADBTB is provided as an API set that features a set of file and program call operations. The API set requires only a few parameters and works in the background to talk to the AS/400 from Windows or Java. ADBTB also includes a VB Class Wizard that automatically creates file-specific VB classes.
