Access/modify data from DB2 of iSeries

I'm developing an application on ASP as front end and DB2 as the back end (running on the iSeries). How should I access/modify data from DB2 of iSeries, using ASP?

You can use a variety of methods to accomplish this task. You can use an ODBC driver, such as Client Access or Client Access Express ODBC drivers supplied with your iSeries, or use another vendor ODBC drivers by searching on for ODBC. You can also write CGI's on the iSeries using RPG, C or COBOL programs to perform your functions using a variety of utilities or the freeware CGIDEV2 library supplied by Giovanni and the wonderful group at IBM Italy.
