ODBC for Apache DBD
Nice bit of serendipity here. I’ve been Cc:d on an email discussion in which I have a slight interest, where Tom Donovan just posted a link to http://code.google.com/p/odbc-dbd/. He’s written an APR DBD driver for ODBC, as a third-party project at google code. And it’s under the Apache License, so unlike the MySQL driver before it was relicensed, there are no legal issues in bundling it with APR, the webserver, or any other relevant project.
I haven’t tried it myself, nor am I likely to in the forseeable future. But assuming it works, it’d be good to see it available in the distros.
