Informix Connect 7.2 and ODBC?

 Informix Connect 7.2 and ODBC?

I had been using informix CLI for ODBC connectivity, but
this was limited to 16 apps. I need to port some of my
apps to 32bit. My company just got connect 7.2 and it does
not seem to include ODBC.

Am I missing something?

Oh, I know about Openlink. It did not work for me (server
is UnixWare, client in Delphi 2.0)

Thanks.

I don't realy know about the 7.2 products yet, but ODBC from Informix
is probably something you need in addition to the connect product.

And you can still use the Lite drivers from OpenLink. They use I-Net
(or Connect?) and need no server component. It may still be better
than the Informix ODBC drivers, although I haven't tested it.

On the server component for UnixWare which they don't currently have:
did you talk to them. It should be a realy simple task for them to
take some of their other server components and compile for UnixWare.
May be they'll do it if you ask them. The OpenLink drivers (the once
with the server component) are so much better than other alternatives
it's worth an effort to get them.

Try one of the following:
1) INFORMIX-CLI v.2.5 (32 bit)
2) IFORMIX-Connect (Runtime of ESQL/C TD1 7.20 library, 32 bit) and
any Intersolv or Vigisenic 32-bit ODBC drivers;
3) SCO SQL-Retriever (the best solution).
