StarQuest Data Replicator (SQDR) is a replication software product that allows you to copy data between IBM DB2, Oracle, and Microsoft SQL Server database environments.
SQDR Plus for iSeries and SQDR Plus for UDB are companion products that provide incremental replication support from IBM iSeries (AS/400) and DB2 UDB for Linux, UNIX & Windows databases. SQDR Plus is installed on the host computer where the database resides, and is administered with a program called CAMAINT (Capture Agent Maintenance) that is installed as part of SQDR Plus.
This package allows you to install and run CAMAINT on a local workstation, communicating with SQDR Plus running on the host computer. In addition to the CAMAINT program itself (AgentUtil.jar), it contains a private copy of the StarSQL for Java type 4 JDBC driver which is used to provide connectivity to the host system.
The following topics are addressed in these Release Notes. Refer to the SQDR Plus for iSeries Users Guide or the SQDR Plus for DB2 UDB Users Guide for detailed information about using the Capture Agent Maintenance application.
