    You can download the evaluation copy for free either from ibm or iiug. If you need a license copy you must contact ibm.

    Informix 4GL is not bundled with the software, however after installing & creating your instance you can use dbaccess (sql tool) to create your database, tables & also to run sql statements.

    for admin you can use 'dbaccess' (unix command line & character menu)
    for admin you can also use ISA-Server (free web based admin tool for informix) for basic manipulation.
    More complex admin tasks and monitoring you can use Server Studio (not free).

    Developping appli in 4GL look at aubit(free) (www.aubit.com) or Four J's
