ODBC Concept?

Hi,

Can anyone explain the use of OLE DB provider.

Is my understanding correctly?

When I use a OLE DB provider, e.g. the ole db provider for SQL server, the odbc driver will not be involved.

Thus the flow of the connection will like this:

ADO --> OLEDB provider for SQL server --> SQL Server...
(NO odbc driver will be involved?

Am I correct?
Furhter, the performance of this will be better than using the ODBC drvier?

Thanks!

Hello

  Yes, you are right

  the OLE DB have native drivers to connect the MS SQL server and oracle, and for some more, and for the databases that you cann't find native drive you can use the ODBC drives for it

 and using OLE db is more faster than using the ODBC, so when you have Native drives use it instead of ODBC

Hi mnasman,

I read some articles. It points out we can make a connection of DNS-less connection to the database.

What does this mean? Will this connection using the ODBC drvier or OLD DB interface?

Thanks!

Hello

  In the early days of OLE DB it was uses the ODBC drivers, but later MS add the native drives, if you have native drive for your database, this will use it without ODBC, but if there's no Native drives, then it will uses the ODBC

I think the DNS-Less uses the ODBC (I'm not sure of that), cuz the ODBC support the connection pooling

in the http://www.sql-server-performance.com site i found some info will be useful to you

"If you have a choice between using ODBC or OLE DB to access your SQL Server database, choose OLE DB as it is generally faster. [7.0, 2000] "

look at the more here

Best regards
