Without permission, J2 redirected web traffic to the web site.  They did this despite not having had a web site before (only email).  J2, also without permission, changed the address on the registration for the domain to be DCSoftware’s business address.  DCSoftware does not own that domain and has no access to the domain registration, but for some reason it appears that J2 is attempting to make it look like we do.  There appears to be no way for us to prevent or intercept these redirections.

ARCTOOLS® v8 Announced

ARCTOOLS v8 Main Menu

The latest version of ARCTOOLS®, version 8, provides several important benefits.

First, it extends the power of ARCTOOLS®/400 from the IBM i (aka AS400) platform to the Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle databases.  Prior versions of ARCTOOLS® had separate code bases for IBM i, Oracle and SQL Server.  With this release, ARCTOOLS®/400 has been ported to run on a Windows platform, thus consolidating the user interface across the platforms.  ARCTOOLS®/400 was first released in 1996.  It has the largest install base within the ARCTOOLS® family and has been used successfully at hundreds of customers sites on six continents.  This new version brings customers on the other platforms together.

Second, the configuration of the ARCTOOLS® “modules” (for example, the JDE Module) will be the same across the three platforms.  The tool includes the plumbing that will then perform the archive and purge processes on the server platform of choice – SQL Server, Oracle and IBM i.

Third, as with ARCTOOLS®/400, the archive jobs will be performed in a native language for the platform, on the server, “right up next to the data”, to get the most efficient throughput possible.  And with the “throttle” features built into ARCTOOLS®, the throughput for the process can be throttled back in case index maintenance or mirror / HA lag is an issue.  ARCTOOLS® will allow archive processes to be stopped and restarted, so customers avoid planned outages or high priority time frames (such as month end).
