JSON Store access with .Net API

You created the JSON Store Technology for DB2 for i. Therefore you have the Command Line Processor, Java API and SQL User Defined Functions.
What is missing is a .Net API. Can you please insert that too?

Use Case:

More and More .Net Backend Applications use JSON for communicating with all Kind of App's in the Front End. These JSON Data Needs to be stored. When a Company has IBM i with DB2 they want to store all data in DB2. Right now you have to use the BSON2JSON and JSON2BSON UDF's from within your .Net Application to do that. This is not very productive.
Therefore we need a .Net API like there is the JAVA API.

    The .Net support delivered with the Access Client Solutions Windows Application Package is a basic set of interfaces. For additional enhancements you need to leverage the .Net provider that is shipped with the Db2Connect product.

    The .NET provider that is shipped with IBM iAccess is a very basic provider and not being enhanced.
    The .NET provider that is shipped with DB2 Connect is a much more advanced provider that is being enhanced.
    Requirements related to .NET should be directed to DB2 Connect.
