Open Source Web Application Frameworks like PHP Cake, Ruby on Rails, Python Django or Perl Catalyst are becoming more and more popular among web developers. Even in the enterprise world, that is dominated by Java, those frameworks are gaining ground as they combine the simpleness and power of a scripting language with a strong development framework.
I am pleased to announce a new release of InformixDB, the Python module for developing Informix applications in Python. Changes since the last release include:
- Compatibility with CSDK 3.00
- Ability to manually interrupt or automatically time out SQL execution
- Proper binding of boolean parameters in WHERE clauses
- Make version information about server and client available
- Various bug fixes

After three months, I've finally made the time for another installment of my Python Corner blog. The current edition discusses how to execute queries with variable parameters. Head on over to informixdb.connect to read the article.
Pythonfan aka Carsten Haese.
Due to technical difficulties with making Drupal display my code examples correctly, I haved moved the Python Corner to blogspot, at least temporarily.
In this inaugural edition of the Python corner, I'd like to show you the powerful concept of generators. This is part one, in which I'll give you a hopefully gentle introduction of the general idea and explain why generators are particularly useful in the context of database applications.
Please allow me to introduce myself. In real life, I am Carsten Haese, and my "pythonfan" moniker is a clear indication of my favorite programming language. I am also the current maintainer of the InformixDB module that allows you to develop Informix applications in Python.
