Overview
WINDEV and WEBDEV propose an optional module for the Native Access to Informix. This Native Access allows you to access an Informix database from a WLanguage program without any external driver.
Benefits of using the Native Informix Access:
  • The HReadxxx functions (HReadNext, HModify, ...) can be used on the Informix databases. Which means that an Informix database and a HFSQL database can be handled with the same commands. Porting an existing application to external databases is simplified.
  • The RAD allows you to generate the code with the Hxxx functions (HReadNext, ...) or with the SQLxxx functions.
  • Direct access to an Informix database with no intermediate layer: MDAC, OLE DB and ODBC are useless.
  • WDMap (the data viewer) can be used on your Informix databases.
  • The setup is straightforward: No OLE DB or ODBC layer required on the user computer.
  • All versions of Informix databases are supported
  • etc.
The use of this Native Access is highly recommended when developing Client/Server applications (that access Informix databases) with WINDEV or WEBDEV. Feel free to contact us for any additional information.
Caution:
  • This version of the Native Informix Access operates with WINDEV and WEBDEV 21.
  • This version of the Native Informix Access does not operate with the following products: Informix Standard Edition (SE), Informix OnLine and Informix C-ISAM.
Required configuration

Conditions for using the Native Informix Access

In 32 bits:
  • Informix client layer 3.34.0.11061 (version checked by our services) must be installed.
  • The ICLIT09B.DLL DLL (version checked by our services) must be accessible:
    • from the development computer.
    • from the deployment computer.
Versions 19 and later
In 64 bits:
  • Informix client layer 4.10.00.15364 (version checked by our services) must be installed.
  • The ICLIT09B.DLL DLL (version checked by our services) must be accessible:
    • from the development computer.
    • from the deployment computer.
New in version 19
In 64 bits:
  • Informix client layer 4.10.00.15364 (version checked by our services) must be installed.
  • The ICLIT09B.DLL DLL (version checked by our services) must be accessible:
    • from the development computer.
    • from the deployment computer.
In 64 bits:
  • Informix client layer 4.10.00.15364 (version checked by our services) must be installed.
  • The ICLIT09B.DLL DLL (version checked by our services) must be accessible:
    • from the development computer.
    • from the deployment computer.
The ICLIT09B.DLL DLL is sought by default. If this DLL is not available:
  1. Create a "WDIFMX.INI" file in the Windows directory (C:\WINDOWS for example).
  2. Add the following information into the "WDIFMX.INI" file:
[CLIENT]
DRIVER=<DLL name>
where <DLL name> corresponds to the full path of the Informix DLL. This DLL can also correspond to the ODBC driver used to access Informix.

The necessary files

The following files are required to use the Native Informix Access:
  • ICLIT09B.DLL (version checked by our services): This DLL is installed by the client layer of Informix. See the license agreement of Informix for more details about the distribution conditions of this DLL.
  • wdxxxifmx.dll: Required for the Native Access to an Informix database in 32 bits. This file is supplied with the Native Access for Informix.
  • Versions 19 and later
    wdxxxifmx64.dll: Required for the Native Access to an Informix database in 64 bits. This file is supplied with the Native Access for Informix.
    New in version 19
    wdxxxifmx64.dll: Required for the Native Access to an Informix database in 64 bits. This file is supplied with the Native Access for Informix.
    wdxxxifmx64.dll: Required for the Native Access to an Informix database in 64 bits. This file is supplied with the Native Access for Informix.
