Simple C++ ODBC Database API is designed to encapsulate the ODBC API functionality in an object oriented manner.
The API was created due to an absence of any other such API that was database independent. The database independence is achieved using the ODBC (Open DataBase Connectivity) API.
The API provides a Database object that can be used to create instances of Query objects. The Query objects are used to query a database and allow columns to be bound for the query.
The flowing column objects are currently available (as of Jan 2005): a boolean column, a long column and a string column. The string column makes use of the libstdc++ string class so you don't have to mess around with malloc.
The Database object also has some convenience member functions that allow queries that return a single integer or string to be executed without having to create a query object or bind columns.
The API has been tested to work with both MySql and PostGreSQL on a Debian Linux platform.
What's New in This Release:
· DoubleColumn, IntColumn, and BigintColumn were added.
· The LongColumn is deprecated.
