The FusionWare mvLynx Direct product family provides a number of ways to get access to your MultiValue data.  One of the places where MultiValue applications tend to have a significant and important investment is in their file dictionaries.  In addition to identifying the raw data in the file for reporting purposes, these often include complex formulas, and implicit "joins" of data from other files.

In this post we will look at how you can take advantage of these assets in building out your data access strategy.

Once you determine the command to access this data, it can be used from Java, .NET, COM/COM+. With the mvLynx managed provider, you can use this to create web services, ASP.NET forms and controls, WinForms, SilverLight, Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), SSIS scripts, Reporting Services reports and many other applications and solutions.

This is a follow up to a previous post that showed how to map the SALESORDER file with the mvLynx Direct Designer.

Mapping a MultiValued file is one way that FusionWare allows you to access your MultiValue data. Once this is done, you can use this data from applications written using .NET, COM/COM+ and Java, enabling you to do many things, including creating a Data Warehouse or Data Mart, Business Intelligence and Reporting, and Integration with applications and technologies from Microsoft, IBM, Oracle and others, and create custom web sites, applications, mobile apps and more.

This article takes you through some example data, explains it in detail, then shows how you would map it and access the data using a mapped view from a Windows form control.

Fusionware mv2SQL enables rapid, cost effective creation and population of a data warehouse or data mart enabling consolidated BI deployment or other integration projects and has been our best selling product since we first released it.

At FusionWare we have just released our new mvLynx 2SQL product.  This product builds on the success of our mv2SQL product and adds additional capability and even greater ease of use.  Here are the new features and functionality that you can expect to see with this new version.

Please note that the mvLynx brand is new.  We've added the name mvLynx to many of our existing products, and use it to identify products that are specific to the MultiValue community.  Our dbLynx brand is for products that are targeted to our non-MultiValue customers.

In order to assist us in reaching both our mainstream customers and our MultiValue customers with clear, targetted messages, and to assist our customers in identifying which products and services are best suited for them, FusionWare is announcing our new product branding strategy.

Products targeted primarily to the MultiValue market will use the mvLynx brand, while products that are targeted to a mainstream audience will use the dbLynx brand.

Wishing all our friends, family and customers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  With a link to a Dickensian look at where we've been and where we're going.

In this document we will create a macro-enabled workbook and use a pre-built macro to import MultiValued data into a series of worksheets in the workbook.

The data will come from the sample CUST file in the GAXOLEDB account that is created when the FusionWare Direct Data Access Server (Direct DAS) is installed on your MultiValue system.

You will need to modify the connection string to reflect your system, and you can freely modify the COMMANDTEXT property and other code to process different tables.

We will use the FusionWare Direct OLE DB Provider to access this data.

This document describes how you can rapidly create a DataSet of your MultiValued data without having to map your data.  Starting with a TCL LIST/SORT command that produces the output that you want to retrieve, we show you how to go from that to a fully functional ADO.NET command that retrieves this data for you.  Note that although we focus on ADO.NET, the same command can be called from COM/COM+ using the FusionWare Direct OLE DB Driver, or from Java using the FusionWare Java Data Adapter.

This article provides examples and explains in depth, how Microsoft's DbDataAdapter Fill method converts nested IDataReader objects representing MultiValued data into a series of DataTable and DataRelation objects in a DataSet.

We developed our first web middleware solution in 1994, and released it to our first customer in 1995.  In this blog entry we review of the standards and industry best practices that shaped the FusionWare Direct products and solutions for the Web.

Connecting to a MultiValue (PICK) database using FusionWare Direct ADO.NET provider from a WPF application using Visual Studio 2010.  Example code using the sample CUST file in the FusionWare Direct Data Access Server (Direct DAS) account. This is part two where we customize the Data Access Layer further to allow selective retrieval of data.
