The DataDirect Connect SQL Server Wire Protocol ODBC driver was built through an agreement with Microsoft to port their ODBC Windows source code for both ODBC core components and the SQL Server driver to non-Microsoft Windows platforms. It is built using a version of the TDS specification that Microsoft provided to DataDirect.
The DataDirect Connect for ODBC SQL Server Wire Protocol driver fully supports SQL Server 7, SQL Server 2000, and SQL Server 2005.
The DataDirect Connect for ODBC SQL Server Wire Protocol driver was the first ODBC 3.0-compliant SQL Server driver on non-Windows platforms in the marketplace. It not only supports the minimum API required by the specification, but also implements the entire API.
