im interested in any information (good and/or bad) about OmniConnect. how
reliable it really is.  what are its shortcomings to be aware/beware of.  

im planning to use it as a gateway for a new sybase-pb application, under
development, and an existing ingres database.

any information will be useful in taking a decision.

Hi

Yes I tried OMNI connect 10.5 and Omni access module for Oracle 10.1.2
These are the currently releases available, sybase delaying new versions
each month... since november, 95 !

Omni alone is quite good for working with multiple sybase servers

If you need to access oracle servers, then you need 'direct connect' for
Oracle, but it is still not yet released ("next month" - that's what I'm
told for 8 month now).
Then you can use old omni access for oracle, but is buid with 4.9 open
server architecture. So it does not know about types such as numeric
(decimal in oracle)

It also has some problems with float datatypes

If you need more info...
