There's much excitement around here now that IBM® Informix® Genero® is generally available. In fact, you might want to mark your calendar for the April 21 "Chat with the labs" to hear Jerry Keesee and Shawn Moe describe the new Informix Genero offering, including packaging, sales, and technical support.
During the development phase, I installed the product to verify some installation instructions. The installation went smoothly and was very quick and easy to do -- I just followed the prompts on the installation application and, voila, in minutes I had the integrated development suite on my laptop.
I thought I'd explore the graphical Form Designer in Informix Genero Studio. A form is the user interface for Informix Genero applications. For example, forms allow application users to query a database or to make changes in the rows of a database table. Adding widgets to the form was simple. With a few clicks, I selected the fields that I wanted to add and then I typed labels for them. From the Genero Studio workspace, I could customize the form. I simply grabbed the fields to make them longer or shorter. I selected items from the form structure list, deleted them, and then they disappeared from the rendered image. Oh the power! Hmm, maybe in my next life I should be a developer?!
The new Informix Products information center has all the documentation for older Informix server and CSDK versions, 4GL, DataBlade modules, and other tools.
