RPG User Defined Functions & Table Functions
Speaker: Scott Klement

RPG is the best language in the world for writing business rules. But what happens when you want to use those business rules from SQL? Or from a web application that accesses your business logic through SQL? In this session, Scott will explain how User Defined Functions (UDFs) can be called from SQL statements to run from anywhere, including ad-hoc queries, SQL run from web applications, and SQL run from the embedded SQL precompilers used by RPG and other languages.

Accessing External Databases from RPG
Speaker: Scott Klement
10:15a-11:45a, Geneva 1

Years ago, a business might have run everything on one platform, but not today. RPGers often need to access data from 3rd party databases, such as Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL and DB2 on other platforms. One way to do this is by using Java database (JDBC) drivers in your RPG programs. Scott will share his experience in using this technique and show you how you can access external databases from your RPG programs.
