CONNX DB Adapter for Micro Focus®

Meet all of your data access, integration and management requirements whether you want to plug into mainframe, mid-tier, desktop or cloud systems. Using the industry’s widest range of database drivers, you can create a single view of multiple databases and allow real-time access to consume the data as it is being updated in real time.

The CONNX for Micro Focus module provides secure, real-time, read/write access to Micro Focus® data sources on Windows®, Solaris®, HP-UX®, AIX®, Linux® and other UNIX® flavors. In conjunction with other CONNX modules, you can perform seamless joins between Micro Focus and any other supported database.

Join Micro Focus with multiple data sources

In conjunction with other products in the CONNX suite, you can perform seamless joins between two or more supported disparate databases using ODBC, OLE DB, .NET and JDBC®. CONNX for Micro Focus is fast and efficient. With CONNX, a single metadata model can be created that spans all enterprise data sources and applications requiring data access. The result is an enterprise-wide view of data that provides a reusable standards-based framework for information access. To the user or application, data appears as if it existed in a single federated relational database.

SQL & CONNX for Micro Focus

The CONNX distributed SQL engine reduces the workload placed on the server by performing CPU intensive operations where the CONNX client resides (Linux, UNIX or Windows, i.e., a remote desktop, web and/or application server) while allowing the database engine to perform tasks best suited to it. CONNX supports ANSI SQL (Insert, Update, Select and Delete); group by, distinct, aggregate (AVG, MIN, MAX, SUM and COUNT), and all substring, string, date, conversion and math functions. Nested inner and outer left/right joins are supported, as well as subqueries and correlated subqueries. CONNX also supports Unions and Insert/Select.

Key features


CONNX supports the creation of views, which facilitate hiding table relationships from the end user. CONNX Views facilitate the creation of heterogeneous joins between multiple disparate databases.

Data conversions

CONNX supports more than 600 data types and performs bi-directional data conversions for data updates and retrieves.


Count on ODBC Full Compliance (level 2), JDBC Type 3 Driver, OLE DB 2.5 Driver,.NET 2.0 Driver and above.

Security preserved and extended

The CONNX Data Dictionary (CDD) provides additional field and table-level encryptable security by group or user, ensuring the security of sensitive information. CONNX also supports row level security with CONNX Views. Additionally, the CDD is encrypted to secure sensitive information.

Metadata import

CONNX for Micro Focus imports metadata directly from COBOL copybooks and a CONNX Text Specification file format into a CDD.
