    The IBM i Open-Source Software team recently ported the IBM i Access ODBC Driver to work directly on IBM i, where previously it had only been compiled for Windows and Linux systems. This meant that prior to this delivery, you could develop applications that communicate with Db2 on i with a Windows or Linux machine using ODBC, but couldn’t transfer the code to IBM i systems as they only had access to CLI (Call Level Interface) drivers. The delivery of a Db2 for i ODBC driver for IBM i enables you to create applications using open-source technology against Db2 on i on your development machine, and then transfer those applications to your IBM i system when they are ready for production. Being new, there is some uncertainty among IBM i users as to how to install the ODBC driver on IBM i. IBMer Mark Irish alleviates the confusion in this step-by-step guide.
