2 Technologies to bring your applications into the 20 teens - by Barry Hayes    

Technology 1.  Green screen modernization taken to the max.  It is possible to run your current applications in a browser with graphics and high performance.  Demonstration to follow.

While IBM has promoted numerous Web development technologies from CGI-Bin to Java Servlets to PHP, if a company were to make a clean start on B2B today, a different core technology would probably be used.  Today, new Web Development centers around HTML5, AJAX and a few other concepts.  Presentation to follow.

Searching Unstructured Text Using OmniFind Text Search Server for DB2 for i -  by Nicholas Lawrence

This session describes the integrated text search capabilities of DB2 for the i.  In this talk, I'll show you why being able to index and search the unstructured text and XML data that is stored in a DB2 for i column is a big deal, and why the integration of OmniFind Text Search Server for DB2 for i is an advantage.  I'll talk about what it takes to set up and administer a text search environment.  In addition, I'll cover extensions that will allow you to index and search text data that is stored in IFS stream files, spool files, or members in a source physical file. 

Nick Lawrence is an IBM Advisory Software Engineer working on DB2 for i in Rochester, Minnesota.  You can reach Nick at ntl@us.ibm.com.
Please join us at Spazio's for our November meeting. To register for the event RSVP by noon on November 10th. Free to members and $25 for extra attendees from member companies and $40 for non-members.
