Does Server Express and Visual Cobol support Ingres Database on RHEL? What is the Pre-compiler to be used?

RE: VC/SX with Ingres DB

You could use the OpenESQL technology if you had an appropriate ODBC driver for Ingres on RHEL

A google search showed one such possibility which works with unixODBC manager.

Ingres also appears to have its own precompiler for COBOL called esqlcbl, although I do not know anything about it.

Also found a reference to the docs in the following link. although it appears to be quite old.

Thanks
