Informix 4GL to Genero migration.

“i2GEN turnaround time to migrate our 4GL applications to Genero far exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend their services.”

– Shirley McLaren, Director – IT, SWA


Before i2GEN:


SWA had a Customer Information System (CIS) on Informix 4GL for years.  They required a migration to Genero with several enhancements to improve the functionality and time management for users. SWA faced the following challenges for many years within their Informix system:

  • Client works on normal menus.
  • Login is controlled through terminal emulation.
  • Action based on function keys and same is displayed in a separate window using “display at”.
  • Default values for fields in form.
  • Yes/No field selection in forms.
  • Screen Array displays in form.
  • Display for information.
  • Required and No entry fields.
  • Each window/form opens a separate window.
  • LOGO not currently displayed in forms.
  • Reports are directly sent to printer.
  • Specific value selection in field.
