Projects / mxODBC


mxODBC is an extension package that provides a Python Database API compliant interface to ODBC 3.5 capable database drivers and managers. In addition to the capabilities provided through the standard API it also provides a rich set of catalog methods that allow you to scan the database for tables, procedures, etc. Furthermore, it uses the mxDateTime package for date/time value interfacing eliminating most of the problems these types normally introduce (other in/output formats are available too). Supported database targets are MySQL, Solid, Sybase, Oracle, Infomix, Adabas, MS Access, MS SQL Server and many other databases with ODBC drivers. Also supported are the Windows ODBC manager and the Unix ODBC managers iODBC and unixODBC, as well as the EasySoft ODBC-ODBC bridge.
