There are severel other programming languages hich can use ODCB. One is 4D by ACI (www.aci.com). This is a database language which has a full WEB support and is able to use ODCB.

If you don't want to use MFC, you're not going to have anything like a CDatabase object. Unless, of course, you get it form some other library or invent it yourself.

The ODBC API is well-documented; there are at least two MS-Press books on it, and there's tons of info on it in MSDN about the APIs. You'll need to read up on the APIs and figure out which ones you will use for your application--they'll depend greatly on what, exactly, your application will do.

To get started, you can connect to your data source with the SQLConnect() and disconnect with SQLDisconnect().

What do you mean by "You can't use MFC with the web"? If you mean that you can't put MFC in server-side web scripts or apps, nothing could be further from the truth!
