Chapter 3. OpenLink ODBC Driver (Multi-Tier Edition) Client Component

Abstract

This chapter describes the ODBC client component of OpenLink Universal Data Access (UDA).

ODBC stands for Open Database Connectivity, a data-access API implementation from Microsoft that conforms to the X/Open SQL CLI specification. ODBC links ODBC compliant applications to ODBC Drivers via the ODBC Driver Manager.

ODBC Driver Managers exist on other platforms such as Mac, Unix and Linux. These platforms usually make use of the "iODBC Driver Manager". Additional information regarding iODBC can be obtained from: www.iodbc.org.
