SQL Tools™ for i

SQL Tools is a huge selection of SQL functions that work across all IBM i releases starting with V7R2 and going threw V7R5. Unlike many IBM Services these functions return the same information across all releases except for one or two rare situations. They improve RPG programmer productivity by eliminiating the complexity that using APIs requires. All IBM i SQL, RPG and CL interfaces support SQL Tools.

SQL Tools is the New Standard in "Every Shop has It"

Compatible with Version 7 Rel 2 thru 5

SQL Tools is the perfect collection of powerful and easy-to-use SQL Functions that replaces the need to setup and call IBM i APIs to get information into your programs. Use them in RPG IV apps or in your favorite SQL interface, such as ACS RUNSQL SCRIPTS, STRSQL, SQL iQuery, and now Visual Studio CODE and dBeaver. One call to an SQL Tools function can avoid coding hundreds of error-prone lines for calls to IBM i API.
