This manual describes the Oracle Database Gateway for Adabas, which enables Oracle client applications to access Adabas data through Structured Query Language (SQL). The gateway, with the Oracle Database, creates the appearance that all data resides on a local Oracle Database, even though the data can be widely distributed.
This manual is intended for Oracle database administrators who perform the following tasks:
Installing and configuring the Oracle Database Gateway for Adabas
Diagnosing gateway errors
Using the gateway to access Adabas data
Note:You should understand the fundamentals of Oracle Database Gateways before using this guide to install or administer the gateway.
Our goal is to make Oracle products, services, and supporting documentation accessible to all users, including users that are disabled. To that end, our documentation includes features that make information available to users of assistive technology. This documentation is available in HTML format, and contains markup to facilitate access by the disabled community. Accessibility standards will continue to evolve over time, and Oracle is actively engaged with other market-leading technology vendors to address technical obstacles so that our documentation can be accessible to all of our customers.
