We Speak Informix


1. IIUG Insider (Issue #23)-ISQL

Is ISQL a product that is only for use with 4GL as I am confused after
the latest announcements.

"...also launching 4GL and ISQL 7.32. These products are expected to
allow users currently on IDS 7.x databases to take full advantage of
the latest function-rich IDS 9.4 server release."

"....can buy or renew 4GL 7.32 and/or ISQL 7.32 licenses."

The bit I am most interested in is -
"allow users currently on IDS 7.x databases to take advantage of ..function-rich IDS 9.4 server release." How ?

So what is ISQL. ( I did a search on the IBM web site and clicked on ISQL and it took me to the
4GL page :-( )

Is this just marketing speak for upgrade and you can .....
Or can users of IDS 7.x really take advantage.

Apologies in advance for my ignorance and naievity and trust in marketing hype.
