DataBlade Developers Kit User’s Guide

These topics describe how to use IBM® Informix® DataBlade® Developers Kit (DBDK) tools to develop and package DataBlade modules.

A DataBlade module extends the functionality of IBM Informix to handle data with user-defined routines or to handle nontraditional kinds of data, such as full text, images, video, spatial, and time series data.

These topics are written for experienced C, C++, or Java™ programmers who are comfortable writing libraries to support applications. Use these topics to develop DataBlade modules that extend your IBM Informix database server.
