We need ODBC communications from Windows apps to
Informix 4.10 running on Unix V Rel 4 Ver 3.
What is the best approach:
1) Informix supplied solution
What is required on the server side?
What is required on the client side?
Do they support their own version 4.10?
2) Third party drivers
Which companies support version 4.10 of Informix?
What pieces do we need to buy (client side, server side)?
3) Upgrade Informix
What is involved?
How much does it cost typically when keeping the same number of users?
Which version can we get by with least cost/complexity
that still supports easy and reliable ODBC communications?
BTW, is there any FAQ, white paper, web site, etc. that deals with
the issues of either Informix ODBC communications or Informix upgrades?
