Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea
Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests
The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.
Receive notification on the decision
Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Developers have the Informix Client SDK installed on their workstations / application development machines.
There is the need to be able to dump the Informix databases schemas definitions, but the SDK does not provide any such tool.
To work arou...
Some customers are constrained and need to continue to use Informix 32-bit CSDK drivers. Their applications currently use the Informix 32-bit libraries & there are often build constraints to moving to a 64-bit CSDK.
Ability to sync tables to HDR & RSS secondaries when converting from RAW to STANDARD mode.
It is significantly faster to load a table in TYPE(RAW) mode than TYPE(STANDARD) mode. However, this option is not practical for sites using HDR and/or RSS secondary servers for replication as RAW mode tables do not replicate forcing the site to b...
