IBM Informix Client Software Development Kit (Client SDK) V3.0 and IBM Informix Connect Runtime V3.0 now include .NET Framework 2.0 support for IDS V7.31, V9.4, and V10.00 on Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows 2003 Server platforms. Client SDK V3.0 contains a collection of APIs that can speed development of applications that work with Informix database servers. Using Client SDK, developers can:

  • Write applications in a number of languages, including Java™, C++, C, and ESQL.
  • Write applications using tools that work with ODBC or ADO.NET. This flexibility allows more choice in programming environments, promotes easier and faster application development, and can reduce the cost of training developers in new skills.
  • Build one application to access multiple Informix databases. This can save maintenance and support expenses, minimize downtime, and speed application development.

IBM Data Management Gold Red Brick Analytic Enterprise and SMB Bundles and Business Intelligence Bundle components have been updated from DB2 V8.2 to DB2 V9.1 and from WebSphere Information Integrator V8.2 to WebSphere Information Server V9.1.

Overview

A new data provider for Informix™ Client SDK V3.0 and its runtime product IBM Informix Connect Runtime (RT) V3.0 allows .NET applications to access IDS by using the common base classes that are declared in the System.Data.Common namespace. The .NET Framework 2.0 support for IDS V7.31, V9.4, and V10.00 on the Windows™ platform enables development of a generic .NET database application without referencing any data provider-specific classes. It provides IBM Database Add-Ins for Microsoft™ Visual Studio 2005, which is a collection of add-ins to the Microsoft Visual Studio .NET IDE, simplifying the creation of IDS applications that use the ADO.NET 2.0 interface. Client SDK V3.0 also contains significant performance improvements to the .NET data provider.

Informix Connect RT V3.0 is a runtime connectivity product that includes the runtime libraries of the Informix Client SDK. These libraries are required by applications running on client machines when accessing Informix servers. Informix Connect RT is needed when finished applications are ready to be deployed.

The following Data Management Gold Bundles are being updated from DB2® V8.2 to V9.1:

  • Data Management Gold Program Business Intelligence Bundle
  • Data Management Gold Program Red Brick™ Analytic Bundle for Enterprise
  • Data Management Gold Program Red Brick Analytic Bundle for SMB

Description

Client SDK provides a number of business benefits:

  • As a high-performance OLEDB provider, it brings solid data access improvement and Unicode support to Microsoft Visual Basic or Visual C++ applications that require data access in a variety of locations and formats.
  • A Unicode-enabled, industry-standard-compliant ODBC driver enables developers to dynamically access a broad range of Informix database servers, including IDS, XPS, OnLine, and Standard Engine.
  • Support for .NET applications to access an IDS server via Visual Studio .NET bridge for ODBC/OLEDB continues to be provided.
  • It provides server support for developing applications that exploit new IDS V10.00 features.
  • It includes JDBC V3.0, a platform-independent, industry-standard Type 4 JDBC driver that provides enhanced support for distributed transactions. The driver is optimized to work with the IBM WebSphere Application Server.

Client SDK V3.0 and Connect Runtime includes the following components. With the exception of the .NET 2.0 provider, the remaining components have not changed from the last release.

  • Informix ESQL/C V3.0
  • Informix ODBC driver V3.0
  • Informix OLEDB Provider V3.0 (Windows 32 only)
  • Informix Object Interface for C++ V3.0
  • Informix JDBC driver V3.0 (Type 4) and Informix Embedded SQLJ V1.01
  • Informix .NET Provider V3.0 (Windows 32 only) for .NET Framework 2.0

Charge metrics definitions

Processor

A processor (commonly called a CPU or core) is a functional unit within a computing device that interprets and executes instructions. A processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic or logic unit. With multicore technology each core is considered a processor. With full capacity licensing, a PoE must be acquired for all activated processors available for use on the server.

Registered user

A registered user is one and only one named individual within or outside your enterprise that is recorded in a registry (for example, table, directory, file) maintained by you. A PoE must be obtained for each individual user accessing the program in any manner. A program licensed under a registered user PoE may be installed on a single computer or server, and accessed by multiple users, provided that a PoE has been obtained for each individual user accessing the program either directly or indirectly (via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means on behalf of the user.

Concurrent session

A concurrent session, at a given point in time, is each logical connection existing at that time between the program and an end-user interface device. Each such existing connection is counted as a concurrent session whether or not it is actually in use. If an individual end user establishes multiple connections, each one is counted as a separate concurrent session, even if they share a common physical pathway. The number of connections is not reduced by any program or machine, such as a front-end server or multiplexer, which may be used to concentrate the connections. Each batch process being executed at the same time is also considered to be a concurrent session.

IBM Electronic Services

IBM Global Services has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to put you on the road to higher systems availability. IBM Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that provides you with an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services provide the opportunity for greater system availability due to faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. IBM Electronic Services is comprised of two separate but complementary elements: IBM Electronic Services news page and IBM Electronic Service Agent™.

IBM Electronic Services news page provides you with a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used by customers to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The IBM Electronic Service Agent is no-additional charge software that resides on your IBM eServer system. It is designed to proactively monitor events and transmit system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, customer-defined timetable. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tracks system inventory, hardware error logs, and performance information. If the server is under a current IBM maintenance service agreement or within the IBM warranty period, the Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to provide proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent will be made available to IBM service support representatives when they are helping answer your questions or diagnosing problems.
