An excerpt from the preface:

IBM® Informix® is a low-administration, easy-to-use, and embeddable database
that is idea for application development. It supports a wide range of development
platforms, such as Java™, .NET, PHP, and Web services, enabling developers to
build database applications in their language of choice. Informix is designed to
handle RDBMS data and XML out of the box, and can easily be extended to
handle new data sets.

This IBM Redbooks® publication provides fundamentals of Informix application
development. It covers the Informix Clients installation and configuration for
application development environments. It discusses the skills and techniques for
building Informix applications with Java, ESQL/C, OLE DB, .NET, PHP, Ruby on
Rails, DataBlade®, and Hibernate. Code examples are used to demonstrate
how to develop an Informix application with various drivers, APIs, and interfaces.
This book also provides application development trouble-shooting and
considerations for performance.
