Acu4GL supports the following RDBMSs:
|RDBMS||Tested with RDBMS version||Probable compatibility, based on vendor information
(Client/Server may be used for connecting to other versions)
|DB2||8.1, 8.2, and 9||No others|
|Microsoft SQL Server||2000, and 2005||Versions greater than 6.5|
|ODBC||3.0||Versions greater than 3.0|
|Oracle||9i for UNIX® (32- and 64-bit) and Windows, 10g for UNIX (32- and 64-bit) and Windows||Versions greater than 9i|
|Sybase||11.x, 12.5||Versions greater than 11.x|
The essence of Acu4GL is that standard COBOL I/O statements are used to access databases. Acu4GL handles the translation between standard COBOL and the language that the RDBMS understands.
There are special instructions and status messages that apply to each individual RDBMS. These are included in the appendices of this manual: each RDBMS has an appendix dedicated to its own specific information.
