iODBC is a cross-platform Driver Manager that comforms to the Microsoft ODBC 2.x & 3.x and X/Open SQL CLI data access specs.
iODBC Driver Manager and SDK enables the development of database-centric solutions that are both database and platform independent.
What is the ODBC Value Proposition?
The ability to develop applications independent of back-end database engine.
What is iODBC?
iODBC is the acronym for Independent Open DataBase Connectivity, an Open Source platform independent implementation of both the ODBC and X/Open specifications. It is rapidly emerging as the industry standard for developing solutions that are language, platform and database independent.
What is the iODBC Value Proposition?
The ability to develop applications independent of back-end database engine, operating system, and for the most part programming language. Although ODBC and iODBC are both 'C' based Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) there are numerous cross language hooks and bridges from languages such as: C++, Java, Perl, Python, TCL etc.
iODBC has been ported to numerous platforms, including:
Linux (x86, Itanium, Alpha, Mips, and StrongArm), Solaris (Sparc & x86), AIX, HP-UX (PA-RISC & Itanium), Digital UNIX, Dynix, Generic UNIX 5.4, FreeBSD, MacOS 9, MacOS X, DG-UX, and OpenVMS.
This is a great SDK for porting WIN32-based ODBC applications to Linux and other OS platforms.
What's New in This Release:
This stable release adds support for Universal Binary executables on Mac OS X.
Small bugfixes were made.
Internal state was not reset correctly after failures on subsequent calls to SQLExecute(), causing some function-sequence errors.
Minor fixes were made for Mac OS X, HPUX, AIX, and 64-bit GUI builds.
Additionally, the license terms have been clarified.
