Here’s another in the series.
- Built in. MARC21 or flat file formats. Unicode support is available as an extra.
- Database Access
- Mixed. No access to the embedded Informix database by default; API training is necessary for read-only access. Oracle is an extra option, but that only gives you a read-only license. For write access, you need a full Oracle license. SQL schema is supplied if you purchase API training.
- API's and Web Services
- Mixed. Z39.50 is offered (not sure if it's an extra). "API access" is an extra - basically you pay for docs of Unix-like commands and the ability to pay for API support if you screw up. API training also gives you some access to the client/server wire protocol so you can roll your own. No Web services. Utterly unusable XML API (it basically wraps the wire protocol with no abstraction).
