DataBaseLayer is the future of wxODBC?

Postby joao.sauer » Thu Jun 18, 2009 10:12 am

Hi people,

I discovered that wxWidgets is dropping the wxODBC. I read the reasons here in the forum about this decision and I really think that it was a good decision, to keep concentrate only in the widgets.

But, my question now is what I can use in instead? In my project, the user will define which DB wants to use, what, in this case, is not easy to get just one wrapper and use it.

I was looking about the DataBaseLayer and it's appear that the latest version is 1.8 launched this year(I read this here in the forum). So, Can I imagine that the 1.8 version will be compatible with the wxWidgets 2.9?
And in the site, is saying that supports ODBC backends, what this means? In the wikipedia, is wrote that the ODBC supports some DataBases:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_Database_Connectivity

So, just to clarify more the questions:
* DataBaseLayer 1.5 and 1.8 are compatible with the wxWidgets 2.8 and 2.9?
* DataBaseLayer supports all these DBs?
- Oracle,
- DB2,
- Microsoft SQL Server,
- Sybase,
- Pervasive SQL,
- IBM Lotus Domino,
- MySQL,
- PostgreSQL,
- SQLite3,
- Firebird.

Thanks for your help,
Joao

Hi Again,

Maybe I was not so good in explain my question. Sorry about that.

What I want to make is a prog that could accept as much DB that I can do. Because the client will say which DB it will be necessary to use. And one client could be different from the other client.
I was expecting just the most famous right now: sqlite3(if no DB is used in the client), SQL, MySQL, Oracle, Firebird.

What do you suggest in my case? I believe that DataBaseLayer is a powerfull tool in my case, right?

Thanks,
Joao

I join a question. Whether there are alternatives DatabaseLayer with support of databases MySQL and MS SQL Server (ODBC or directly). It would be desirable also for adequate support stored procedures.

Code::Blocks svn 7789, wxPack 2.8.12.01, TDM MinGW GCC 4.4.1, DatabaseLayer 1.8

http://debea.net/trac/wiki/WxDba is often mentioned as an alternative.

http://soci.sourceforge.net/ also came up

You can also use ODBC directly; your database library doesn't need to have "wx" in it name.

I'm using SOCI with a degree of success but I cannot vouch for it yet as my task is not yet finished!
