Subject RE: Informix support?
Date Tue, 25 Jul 2006 13:50:37 GMT
If my memory's not parity ridden, I believe that Torque's 
class generation / runtime supports Informix but the 
Templates needed to generate SQL, etc were donated and then
removed because no CLA (Apache legal protection doc) was 
obtained.  (Plus the fact that no Torque developers have
an Informix server to work with).

This means you should be able to manually create your schema
XML files, skip the SQL generation that part of the default
build target, and use Torque in your application.

Or if you're more open source minded, look at:


Which is an MSSQL7 Torque adaptor and contains an example of
all the files that need to be modified to support any DB. 
These basically generate all DB type specific SQL statements 
(not used in runtime, just in utility functions).  The most
important section is the templates/sql/base area.

I'd suggest deciding what DB is closest to Informix's syntax,
creating the informix subdirectories and copying this DB's
files into it.

Also search the e-mail archives, I think there are some 
Informix template examples in there.
