Our UDA components can only provide connection to a
.mdb file if it is hosted on a Windows operating system with a full Access install.
Yes. We do not build components for installation on OS/400.
To establish connectivity to DB2 on OS/400, you can install our DB2-specific components (Single-Tier "Lite" Edition ODBC Driver or Multi-Tier "Enterprise" Edition Database Agent) on any supported operating system that has a functional copy of DB2 client networking (currently and historically called "DB2 Connect").
You can also use our Bridges to JDBC, in combination with the open source JT/Open (formerly known as JT400) components made available by IBM.
At the time of writing, we have Multi-Tier, Single-Tier (Lite), and Single-Tier (Express) drivers that connect to 32-bit Oracle 10i on Windows x86_64. We have Single-Tier (Express) drivers for 64-bit Oracle DBMS on Windows x86_64. Other driver formats are planned.
Yes! For best results, we recommend that you update to Progress 9.1E04 or later.
We provide 32-bit and 64-bit components built with AIX 5.2 and AIX 5.3. All of these are binary compatible with AIX 6.x and 7.x.
Our 32-bit builds for AIX 4.x are also binary compatible with AIX 5.x, AIX 6.x, and AIX 7.x.
We build and brand components for Leopard which are fully compatible with all later versions to date, through Mac OS X 10.8.2.
Our builds for Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) may also be used with Mac OS X 10.5, should a Leopard-specific build not be immediately available.
We license components by physical core. Software hosted on a machine with a single quad-core CPU, or with two dual-core CPUs, or four single-core CPUs, would require a 4 core license.
Yes. You can purchase permanent license keys using our online Shopcart. The Shopcart will email the keys to you. You will receive a 15 day temporary key when you first download our software. A second, 15 day key will be stored in your ODS DAV repository.
Our evaluation period lasts 15 days.
Our smallest Multi-Tier license supports up to 5 total concurrent database sessions, from up to 5 concurrent client hosts.
You can deploy two commercial or evaluation licenses from different releases on the same machine.
On Unix be sure to set your
OPL_LICENSE_DIR variable to point to the correct directory location before starting any service associated with our components.
If you are deploying Release 6.x+ on the same host as a legacy release, be sure to start all services associated with the legacy installations, before you start any services associated with Release 6.x.
Use our HTTP-based tools to detect the license in use.
Our support team does not write start-up scripts for products in the Product Portfolio. Start-up scripts must be carefully crafted and customized to guarantee proper functionality in the target environment. Professional Services can write such start-up scripts for a fee. Product Support can provide a template which customers and evaluators may modify for their own environments.
We cannot enable SQL-89/4GL connectivity to Progress
SQL-92 connections to OpenEdge 10.0 and later are fully supported.
This is simply a matter of configuring the environment and
.ini files associated with our products.
