QuestView is a powerful database and program generation tool for the IBM System i™ (iSeries or AS/400). It works on physical and logical files to allow inquiry, maintenance, debugging and analysis of a DB2 database. QuestView is also a rapid generation tool that creates simple interactive programs in minutes.

QuestView's traditional (AS/400 green screen application) 5250 user interface offers a robust set of features for System i developers, DB administrators and analysts. They include single and multiple record viewing, search and replace, key field or RRN positioning, HEX format manipulation, undelete, database relations matrix, JD Edwards data dictionary support, Unicode, date/time and variable length field handling. In addition, QuestView is an AS/400 query tool that can execute the Open Query File (OPNQRYF) command, and display the records it retrieves.


Our AS/400 GUI is a graphical user interface module that was introduced with QuestView release 9. Users of the IBM Rational Developer (RDi) or WebSphere Development Studio (WDSc) for System i can now use this powerful database tool within the IDE by simply adding an Eclipse-based plug-in. The usability and functionality of many of the QuestView features are greatly enhanced. Several systems can be accessed and multiple database files can be opened simultaneously within the same IDE session. Different "views" are offered to simplify database relations analysis and for setting up a query. This new module is also available as a stand-alone desktop application.
