I'm sure this has been asked before, but can't find it

I am running on 64bit Solaris 9/10 with a 64bit port of IDS
(7.31.FD7/9.40.FC5) is there any real benefit in using the 64bit CSDK?
Currently the application is compiled with 32bit and apart from keeping
everything consistent I'm looking for a quantifiable benefit so the
developers will take notice and start changing to a 64 bit CSDK


There are 10 types of people in the world, those that understand binary and

If you develop apps in fx ESQL/C and want to use shared memory connection to IDS you have to use 64 bit version. Also if you plan to develop
UDRs in C.

And your application can allocate and use memory larger than

did i mention i like nulls? heck, i even go so far as to say that all
columns in a table except the primary key could/should be nullable. this
has certain advantages, for example, if you need to insert a child record
and you don't have a parent row for it, just do an insert into the parent
table with the primary key value (everything else null), and voila,
relational integrity is preserved. but this is, admittedly, a bit
controversial among modellers.
