eGenix mxODBC Zope Database Adapter

The eGenix mxODBC Zope Database Adapter (Zope DA) allows you to easily connect your Zope installation to just about any database backend. Unlike Zope's ZODBC Zope DA, the mxODBC Zope DA works on Windows, Linux, and Solaris using the same interface. It implements thread-safe connection pooling and multiple physical connects per logical Zope connection. You can safely run Z SQL Methods in parallel, achieving much better performance than ZODBC Zope DA or similar database adapters under heavy load. This makes it ideal for deployment in clusters and hosting environments where stability and high performance are a priority.

    Release Notes: mxODBC Zope DA now works equally well on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris, and FreeBSD. It is compatible with Zope 2.3 - 2.11.

    •  06 Dec 2004 22:07

      Release Notes: Zope 2.7.0 and Python 2.3 are fully supported on all platforms: Windows, Linux, Solaris, and FreeBSD. You can let the mxODBC Zope DA return empty strings instead of None for SQL NULL values. This should simplify porting existing applications to the mxODBC Zope DA. The included mxODBC 2.1 provides full Unicode support if accessed directly. Using e.g. the EasySoft ODBC-ODBC bridge, this allows you to connect to any remote Unicode-aware ODBC backend from any of the supported platforms.

        Release Notes: This version includes connection options that improve compatibility with ODBC drivers. Work was made on compatibility with the 0.61 release of the FreeTDS ODBC driver, which is typically used for connecting to MS SQL Server. Support for non-transactional data sources such as MS Access and MySQL 3.x was added, and the program can now be used under Solaris.
