Porting from Oracle to Informix

Porting from Oracle to Informix

Question:
We have an existing application, which has been developed using ASP. The database being used is Oracle 8. Now, for a different customer, we want to port this application to Informix.

Can we port this application from Oracle to Informix?

Answer:
Yes, the porting job should be made easier by your use of ASP. Build an ODBC data source for Informix, copy the tables into Informix and populate them, and then work from there. Unless you’re using nonstandard SQL, stored procedures, or triggers, the port should be a snap. If you are using these features, you may have a little more work to do, but all in all it’s probably not a major undertaking.
