PlanetJ Puts the WOW into Multi Database Search
October 28, 2008 Alex Woodie
PlanetJ recently unveiled a new component of its Web Object Wizard (WOW) for iSeries suite of products that enables customers to search across multiple databases, including DB2/400, with a single query, and to have the results returned to a Web page.
One of the first customers to use the new component, called WOW for Multi-System Query, is the sheriff’s department of Rockland County in New York. The department implemented the solution to streamline data sharing among neighboring counties as part of a Department of Homeland Security project.
The new system enables users to perform a single query to search multiple databases (including DB2/400, Oracle, MySQL, and Microsoft SQL Server) for details about crimes and crime criteria. The results are combined and presented to the user on a single integrated screen, which provides significant time savings for users and has enhanced public safety, according to PlanetJ.
PlanetJ is a San Diego, California, company that develops a suite of Java-based query and Web application components that are designed for i OS shops (PlanetJ was founded by former IBMers in Rochester, Minnesota, in 1998), but which will work with any Java-compliant computer.
