Host Integrator JDBC Connector Introduction

The JDBC connector provides an industry standard Structured Query Language (SQL) interface to Host Integrator Servers. Although the server is not a relational database system, the Design Tool's Table and Procedure feature provides access to the host application in a way that simulates traditional relational database tables. The JDBC connector works only if you're accessing host data using procedures; accessing host data at the model or terminal level is not an option.

This section describes how to use the JDBC connector and covers the following topics:

This document assumes that you are familiar with using JDBC to access a standard relational database and also that you understand the basics of creating procedures and tables using the Design Tool.
