OpenDRDA is an open source implementation of the DRDA (Distributed Relational Database Architecture) protocol developed by IBM and endorsed as an OpenGroup standard for client to database server communication. The OpenDRDA project's goal is to create an open implementation of the standard, initially as an ODBC client driver, and eventually to bring DRDA server-side support to all major open source databases.
Release Notes: OpenDRDA is now capable of querying a DB2 (or other DRDA) data source and returning results. The authors still need developers, especially those with access to test against DB2 on OS/400 and MVS platforms. Interested developers without access to a DRDA server can contact the list.
Release Notes: Handling of some DDM commands, and the ability to exchange server attributes with DB2 and attempt login.
