1)Is posible to use JDBC 4.10.JC2DE Driver to connect to Informix Standard Engine (SE) version 5.01.UD3, on SCO UNIX version 6.0.0?
2)How can I know the server name on a configured Informix Standard Engine (SE) version 5.01.UD3, on SCO UNIX version 6.0.0 installation?
SE 5.0 has been released before IDS 6.1/7.1 re-architecture of Informix ( Chiefed By Mike Saranga, the father of DB2), to a truely global multithreaded architecture.
SE was not part of this re-architecture, but the client-server layer has been redesigned at this time, bringing in INFORMIXSERVER and INFORMIXSQLHOSTS new concepts in order to connect to a database server, instead of DBPATH which was the connection method before.
If you want client-server with Informix SE 5.0, I think you need another product called Informix-NET, which I guess is not more available on the marketplace.
Why not considering a migration of this very old version either to the last available and supported Informix-SE Version ( 7.25 or 7.26) , or even better to IBM Informix 12.10 ?
If our data+index is below about 6Gb and you have not more than 80/100 users, you can even consider the free of charge production version Innovator-C Edition.
Else check for the Express Edition which is a blast and has features you do not even imagine. And of course no more problems with ODBC, JDBC, perl and PHP drivers and cool stuff like this...
