    Does "DBI" mean "DB2"? If it does and you have i 7.1, then the version of DB2 is 7.1 or V7R1M0. The DB2 version on i is always the same version as the OS. The version of DB2 for i is not the same as any version of DB2 running on other platforms. DB2 on i is integrated with the OS. -- Tom

    Thanks tom for clearing that up. Can you tell me the difference between Zend DBi and DB2 for i. Are they the same thing? Its a bit confusing.

    Zend DBi... Okay, I understand. Sorry, I misunderstood. That's a MySQL build for i that is compiled for Power systems and supplied by Zend. It was made available after Oracle announced that MySQL would no longer be compiled for Power a couple years ago. Included is the DB2 Storage Engine that uses DB2 as the underlying storage while keeping MySQL interfaces for PHP. On the outside, it looks like MySQL is doing everything. The released version of Zend DBi is 5.1.59, but I'll have to do some checking to see what methods are available to query the version from DBi. -- Tom
