Install isql with informix?
Posted on 2012-08-15
Good day experts
I previously installed IBM Informix Dynamc Server, Version 11.50.FC8 under Linux SLES 10 SP2.
Users are asking for a utility called isql to create forms in that server. I'm new to informix, so I really don't know what they're referring to. I did a search on every fs to look if there was any isql command in the informix installation directory but couldn't find it.
I looked up some docs and now I know this is a utility for doing some Interactive SQL statements from the command line, including the creation of forms.
I also read that dbaccess does NOT support report or forms (I guess that's why they're needing isql)...Also that another option to generate reports is the smformbld command, but couldn't find that either on my server.
The question is...how do I get this installed and configured (isql) on my server? Is this part of the IBM IDS package installation or is this utility downloaded from a third party?
Thanks in advance
