  Open Database Connectivity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) provides a standard software API method for using database management systems (DBMS).
A JDBC-ODBC bridge consists of a JDBC driver which employs the ODBC driver to connect to the database.
Several vendors of commercial databases, including IBM (DB2, Informix), Oracle and SAP (Ingres) use it for their own drivers.

 Connections July 1999 Issue - Open Database Connectivity (ODBC)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
The ODBC drivers that are being used under Windows issue database commands without knowledge of the specific database being used, or where the database is located.
In order to locate and access the database, the application references the ODBC driver data source that is set up in the ODBC Administration Control Panel.
The ODBC data source that stores information on how to connect to the specific data provider and the location of the database is assigned a logical name.

 Import data into Excel 2004 by using ODBC
After you download and install the ODBC drivers, you're ready to create a database query, or in other words, ask Excel to retrieve the data you need from the database.
Open a workbook containing a query that was created in another version of Excel.
To set up a connection to an external data source, you'll need to know the name of the server, database, user name, and password.

 What is ODBC? - A Word Definition From the Webopedia Computer Dictionary   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
The goal of ODBC is to make it possible to access any data from any application, regardless of which database management system (DBMS) is handling the data.
ODBC manages this by inserting a middle layer, called a database driver, between an application and the DBMS.
The purpose of this layer is to translate the application's data queries into commands that the DBMS understands.

 Open Database Connectivity Router   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
What's more is that because all applications connect with all databases using a single set of drivers, each user will see the same consistency regardless of whether they are using MacOS, Linux or one of the various releases of Windows.
Another important issue faced by Mac and Linux database users is the problem of selecting the correct ODBC Driver Manager that works with their particular applications.
In these cases, the driver writer is actually "hacking" into the backend database and their code should be avoided due to the probability that their hack is not correct in all circumstances and will eventually return incorrect data or corrupt the backend database itself.

Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) is an open standard application programming interface (API) for accessing a database.
ODBC is based on and closely aligned with The Open Group standard Structured Query Language (SQL) Call-Level Interface.
When writing programs in the Java language and using the Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) application program interface, you can use a product that includes a JDBC-ODBC "bridge" program to reach ODBC-accessible databases.

Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) is a major enhancement allowing access to external (relational) databases from within Business Collaborator.
While maintaining the existing database security, this allows specified users of a Business Collaborator server to interrogate and/or edit data in any supported database connected to the server.
Information such as stock levels, supplier details, purchase orders, etc would be updated in the usual way, but selected information from the database could be made available to those users who need up-to-date stock data.

ODBC is the acronym for Open DataBase Connectivity, a Microsoft Universal Data Access standard that started life as the Windows implementation of the X/Open SQL Call Level Interface specification.
The OpenLink-branded ODBC Driver Manager is called iODBC, being the acronym for Independent Open DataBase Connectivity, an Open Source platform-independent implementation of both the ODBC and X/Open specifications.
ODBC enables maximum interoperability between the application and database as a single application can access any ODBC-enabled database by simply being configured to use its ODBC driver, and likewise an ODBC-enabled application can access a given Database using its ODBC driver.

 MacDevCenter.com -- Open Database Connectivity in Jaguar, Part 2
Since MySQL is not the only open source database available, I'll now cover setting up ODBC with PostgreSQL, which, in many ways, is a less frustrating configuration.
If you haven't already, I recommend reading the first article, "Open Database Connectivity in Jaguar," as it covers some of the basics of ODBC and how to set up ODBC components.
While switching to a different version of MySQL is still changing databases, it is not as severe as changing your entire database platform.

 Open Database Connectivity - 'ODBC'
You might think that all one needs to do to get data out of a database is set up a connection, send off standard SQL queries, have these queries massaged by the ODBC driver into a format that the peculiar database understands, and then get back answers.
Connect to a driver (and thence of course, to a data source).
The idea is that a pool of connections is established, and an application can then use a pooled connection without having to go through the 'whole connection process' every time it wishes to connect.
