 4GL procedures - How to call from NT box?

Hi there,

I have an RS6000 with AIX 4.3.2. Running on this is Informix 7.31.
I need to get an NT box to run (and get results from) 4GL procedures
on the informix database.

Can i run these 4GL procedures through an ODBC connection?

If there is any pertinany information i've missed out - please tell
me, as i don't have much experience with informix databases.

What about turning those 4gl procedures into stored procedured, then
running the stored procedures through ODBC?

Your options are:

o Convert the functions into Stored Procedures in the database if possible.
o Use an rsh utility to execute the 4GL program remotely on the server
  optionally piping input to it.
o Convert to D4GL so you can run 4GL front-end on NT and the back-end on
  AIX.
o Convert to D4GL and run the entire 4GL app on NT.
o Try Querix or one of the other 4GL clones that run on NT that can use
  ODBC connections and run the functions locally on the NT box.
o Write a custom communications protocol to communicate with a service
  running on the AIX box to request that it execute the 4GL function for
  your NT app and return results.
