I've been working with a user on replacing their current web store with one that actually integrates with their System i POS system. Their old one printed an order form off, and they had to pick up the printer output, manually check inventory, grab it, complete the order, then notify the customer. If anything went wrong, they had to notify the customer. It was all asynchronous, which is not what most customers expect from a web transaction.

Recently, we had a call from a company. They were switching small doctor's offices from a competitor's old DOS-based package to their new Microsoft package that used SQL Server or MS Access and Win Forms to provide an application for these clinics and doctors. The old application did not include source code, and the original vendor appeared to have gone out of business (or was uncooperative with the customer trying to move away from them). The real problem was that the version of the database that they were using was one that was over 20 years old!

Our latest effort involves moving EBCDIC data off AS/400 optical drives to a more price effective relational database.  They no longer use the optical storage for their application and when faced with the expensive option of upgrading their existing proprietary system they chose FusionWare Integration to leverage the value in standards based database storage saving them money and giving them better access to their business information.

This is the first of several posts, where I plan to indicate how and why one would access Twitter from a U2 (Universe or Unidata) system.

When I first started with computers, I was working on Microdata systems running an O/S called Reality that had 16 users running on 64K of core memory.

Before I do part 2 of my Twittering from U2 series, I thought I should explain some limitations of this technology.
