TechTip: The Arcad 5250 Emulator Plug-in for WDSC

In this first of a series of tips on plug-ins for WDSC, I'll introduce you to the ARCAD emulation plug-in.

By Joe Pluta

Until recently, I didn't do much with plug-ins in WDSC. I use the base package extensively, but I don't mess with non-IBM stuff for a number of reasons. My biggest reason was that I didn't like to incorporate third-party software of unknown stability into a framework that was working out its own kinks. That particular reason is less of an issue now, not only because WDSC itself has gotten so much more stable but also because the plug-ins I'll be mentioning have been around for some time and have gained good reputations.

With Perseverance and Luck, You Can Conquer the DB2 Web Query Install

You have to be running at least V5R4 to load DB2 Web Query, and there are some PTFs to install. But help is just a phone call away.

By Chris Smith

Those folks at Centerfield Technology certainly are on their toes. An opportunity arises in their field (which is databases), and they're on it. This week the company introduced a new service: installing, configuring, and verifying the functionality of DB2 Web Query for System i.


When I saw the Centerfield announcement, I was a bit puzzled because I had been reading about the application's features and how easy Web Query is to use: so easy, it's said, even a manager can do it (just kidding!). I never dreamed, however, that it would require a consultant to install and configure it.
