Quote:> Hi INFORMIX'ers,
> > how would U define :
Basically each INFORMIX end-user uses two processes to access the data in
the database. A user process and a database server process. These are
also often referred to as the front-end and the back-end, and by some as
the client and the server. Spme people also refer to them as application
and engine processes.
Quote:> user process
Any process providing the interface between the user and the computer.
e.g. ISQL, a 4GL application, an ESQL application
> database server process
A process providing access to the database data. This would include
SQLEXEC, and SQLTURBO. (N.B. Many of the utilities - tblog, tbcheck,
etc., would also count as database server processes as they access the
database data directly)
Quote:> application process
The definition of this is as per user process and the two are synonymous.
