CA-IDMS/DB release 15.0 is a general-purpose high-performance database management system (DBMS) for mainframe platforms. The CA-IDMS Server release 4.3 provides client connectivity to CA-IDMS databases from Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000, and OS/390 UNIX System Services. Although IDMS was originally a CODASYL database, it now also provides a complete industry-standard implementation of the SQL language. The latest release includes scalability, availability, maintainability, system performance, and open access enhancements. In addition to the database engine, Computer Associates offers a set of complementary products for managing the database and integrating the database and its existing applications into today's client/server and Web-enabled environments.
