LVARCHAR not long enough?
I've got some news for you!  If you had been to the IIUG 2015 Conference last week (April 26-30 2015) you might already know this.  If not, relax, 'cause I was there. Question: Have you ever had a requirement for a character type that can hold strings longe...

In my belligerent-canine vocabulary the word "Normalisation" is no longer in use, along with "Primary Key Column", "Foreign Key Column, and utter bilge-pump- terms such as "Subscripted Arrays", BSON. // Did the originators of these empty expressions also add new operators in Arithmetic, so complement "Add", "Subtract", "Multiply" and "Divide"? // In my very sincere view this will come out in the wash, or not, over the next 5 to 10 years... and if it does, then every Information Management System written around Ted Codd's Relational Model in the first place will then be conceptually and practically obsolete. // The first ever working application, BaSSIS, that illustrates this, now goes with me on my laptop / server - Subrelations are now Classified (14 ways) by logical purpose, and the two KEY Subrelations have NAMES "The Identifiers Allocation Subrelation", and "The Subrelations Subrelation". // One you have seen and assimilated those two, then your thinking will be enhanced forever. // The Subrelations Subrelation has evolved, via my Identifiers, from "systables" ... Subrelation NAMES are freely updateable, and have spaces and capitals .. the IMMUTABLE IDENTIFIER of the Subrelations Subrelation is "RPIE". The Allocation Subrelation has IMMUTABLE IDENTIFIER "FIIB", and MY Identifier is "AAUD". /// End of Rant .... with best wishes, and I'm sincere there - it's good to chat ... to decent and sincere people.

Yup.  ALl new databases in China will be Informix databases.  That kind of answers the FUD talk about Informix being a dead end product.  No?
