    Hello Friends,

    I am using MS Enterpriselibrary to connect to iSeries Data base from my web app. We are using ODBC to connect  and we have to change the system to make use of IBM iSeries .net provider (IBM.Data.DB2.iSeries.dll) instead of ODBC. Does anybody have any idea how to convert it make use of it by continue using the same Enterprise library block. Which version of the .net provider support provider  factory classe?

    We have found the solution by installing the IBM DB2 provider (IBM.Data.DB2.iSeries) version 12. This dll comes with IBM iSeries Access for windows (V6R1) installation  This version support factory classes and MS Enterprise library can be configured to use this provider instaed of exiting ODBC provider. This approach will save your time and a lot of code changes.
