Hi there

I know that I can connect to an IDMS DB using JDBC type 4 drivers, but I have a few questions:

Is this the process:
- Set up the IDMS system to allow JDBC connections - defining TCP/IP lines etc.
- Install CA-IDMS Server on client PC
- Try to establish connection.
- Use JDBC driver in web page programming to connect to DB (similar to mySQL and ODBC?) and retrieve data from the IDMS-> display it on the webpage.

Is that overview correct, or have I got it totally wrong?

Here is the diagram of how it works:

It shows that connecting the IDMS via TCP/IP to the JDBC Type 4 driver requires either a Java Platform (does this mean Windows, linux etc) or a Java Client.....what do those mean? How does it work?

If anyone could help clear this up I would be very grateful.

Kind regards
