Coldfusion MX ? ? ?

Hi there,

I've been using CFServer 4.5 for a while and is now testing the Coldfusion MX Enterprise server - on a MS SQL Server 7.0 !

However I'm a bit worried about potential performance issues regarding W2000, CF MX and MS SQL 7.0/2000 !

Any comments on that ?

Here is piece of TechNote 23131 from :

Note: The ODBC SOCKET is a JDBC Type 3 driver which translates JDBC calls into the middle-tier server, which then translates the request to the database-specific native-connectivity interface. Because database-specific code must be executed in the middle-tier, the ODBC SOCKET Type 3 driver does not perform as fast as the Microsoft SQL Server Type 4 driver which converts JDBC calls into the network protocol used directly by the database.



BTW : How can you create the best datasource for MS SQL SERVER ?

The best datasource?  There is no such thing.  A datasource is a datasource.  I have offered the best suggestions you'll find and if you need any other assistance you can email me at

I might be a bit rusty in my's sometimes hard to express exactly what you want to know ;-)

About the datasource I realy ment somthing about how the different types of CF avaible/usable datasource performed in the kind of environment I described above.

Anyway...I decided not to go with MX at the moment...

Thank You for answering.
