Using the Adapter for DB Heritage Files


The Adapter for DB Heritage Files allows applications to access and read native IBM i data sources (also known as Physical, Logical, and Multi-format logical data base files) using the Open Query Facility (OPNQRYF). The adapter converts application requests into native OPNQRYF statements and returns optimized answer sets to the requesting application. All physical, logical, and multi-format formats are supported.

Note: In previous releases, this adapter was called DBFILE or DB File.
