The NTIUG is proud to announce we are hosting Madison Pruet of IBM at our next NTIUG meeting, scheduled for Thursday, July 24, 2003, from 11:30 AM to 2:30 PM. Lunch will be served and sponsored by Gillani, Inc., the makers of FourGen CASE Tools and FourGen Accounting software.

Madison Pruet will present on Replication in the IDS Server including HDR and ER. Key items covered will be:
1) Internal Logic
2) Set up issues
3) Differences between HDR and ER
4) Monitoring and Trouble Shooting
5) Replication Strategies
While discussing a bit about internal logic of HDR and ER, the primary focus will be information that is useful from a customer perspective. There will be a Q&A, including examination of any customer cases that anyone would like to have examined. (assuming network access)

A resident of Flower Mound, Madison joined IBM as part of the Informix acquisition. Prior to the acquisition, Madison had been an Informix employee for five years in advanced tech support and as architect for Enterprise Replication. Prior to working at Informix, Madison worked at La Quinta Inns, Sperry-Univac, and Xerox. Madison is a key architect of the IDS product. In addition to the ER work, he was a member of three that implemented the large chunk feature and the implementer of network encryption in the 9.4 IDS release. In the 9.3 release of IDS, he was responsible for the ER performance enhancement features. He has recently expanded his role to include work in the IBM Information Integration product.

We have also arranged to present on Informix-4GL. All Informix-4GL developers, mark your calendar !
Gillani, Inc. will present "Extending Informix-4GL programming capabilities using FourGen CASE tools (formerly Informix-4GL FORMS & MENUS)".
This will be an overview of the FourGen CASE Tools V8.1 software and how it can be utilized today as a Rapid Application Development environment for Informix-4GL programmers to create a wide range of industrial strength IBM/Informix database applications. Included are: FourGen Form Painter, FourGen Menus, FourGen Screen & Report Generators, GUI Front-end Generator (Enterprise Desktop), plus a host of new features like Dynamic Arrays, Function Matrix, Improved Query Generation, Encryption of Data and Publishing 4GL reports to the internet.
