Software and Tools

Intro

Usefulness of a product such as a database management system is often measured through supporting software and tools. While there is a bunch of software products that can be used with Informix and for Informix, there would always be some use cases that could be done easier or with less effort. As a DBA and a programmer, I’m dedicated to develop and share some tools I made for my own usage, and believe others would find useful as well. Even though some of those tools may be redundant, the more tools Informix community have, the merrier (and perhaps bigger) community it will be.

In short

In this page, you’ll find short description and a link to a post describing the software/tool/script with further references to source code or executables. Stay tuned, more to come.

There are two GitHub projects to keep an eye on: ifmx-sql-editor and ifmx-utils.

There are two GitHub projects to keep an eye on: ifmx-sql-editor and ifmx-utils.

Ifmx SQL Editor – an improved and open-sourced version of original Informix SQL Editor, can be used on multiple platforms (post, another post, GitHub project).

Ifmx table copy – SPL functions for creating full copy of a table (post, GitHub project)

Migrate onconfig – the script for migrating your actual onconfig file to a new version (post).

Row-level auditing – SPL procedures for creating simple row-level auditing of a table (post, GitHub projet, code)
