Do you want to see Oracle data in Informix, Informix data in Oracle, or both?

You can connect Oracle to non-Oracle databases using heterogeneous services.

As always, I'll defer you to the online docs:

What exactly steps we need to do on oracle database and what steps we need to do on informix database. I have never worked on this topic, so please tell me in details steps.
>>I have never worked on this topic, so please tell me in details steps.

Like many of your questions, I'm afraid we can't provide exact steps.  How you connect the database depend on what you need to do with that connections.  This depends on the specifics of the applications/programmers making this request.

Once they tell you the what/why and how this all needs to work, we can probably help you out.

Short of that I've provided a link on connection Oracle to non-Oracle databases.
Customer wants me to  installed/configured ODBC on our new server so there can connect to this informix database. How do I go ahead please let me know.
You have already asked and accepted an answer on how to install the ODBC driver for Oracle:

This question is:  How do we communicate with oracle and informix using odbc driver
But I didn't get the correct answer as I got details about it from customer now. So what shall I do now. I am sorry about that and try not to close the question when it is not solved. I really appreciate your help
