Database connection in LINC

Database connection in LINC

(OP)
Hi,
I'm new to using LINC. Currently the data what we insert is stored in a .DAT file in our local machine.
I want to access data from a RDBMS say oracle or SQL Server in LINC.Were do we mention the database name, user id, password information etc.What commands do we need to use to access the database.
There are no books available for LINC.It would be helpful if someone could guide us on this.

Thanks,
TL

RE: Database connection in LINC

It looks like you are using test environment only. In the latest LINC releases it is called "EAE Developer Test" and is formerly known as "LDA RunTime" system. Don't be confused with "RunTime" term which designates something quite different in the latest releases starting from 3.1 then it did before.

To get direct access to Developer Test database you could install some third-party product like the following
- DB access tool like "LDAViewer" or "RT Query"
- ODBC driver from independent company to provide SQL-like access to developer test database. Once I came across some from EasySoft which name sounds like "Easysoft SQI-LDA Driver" or something like that.

There could be some other on the market. The best you can do is searching over internet with Google search engine for example.

You can access LINC (Enterprise Application Environment - EAE) documentation on the Unisys support web site.

The following steps will provide access to the LINC documentation without requiring a Unisys support contract.
1. Go to: http://public.support.unisys.com/
2. Click on either the Documentation link or the word
   documentation in the sentence "Access documentation to
   learn about Unisys product offerings."
3. Accept the agreement.
4. Click on the LINC link, or expand by clicking on the
   plus sign next to LINC.
5. Select your version of LINC/EAE
6. Select the documents.  Hint - If you do not specify any
   "words or phrases to find", you will get the titles of
   all documents for the selected LINC/EAE version.

Regards,
Mike
