To summarize, this version is phase 3 of the NoSQL/Json/Bson integration into Informix. Full compatibility with MongoDB should be reached by the end of this year. In the meanwhile, you can mix structured SQL tables with unstructured NoSQL collections in the same Informix database , join them in one query if you need to, taking benefit of unbeatable escalation as per compared to open source NoSQL DBMS.
