Project description

eGenix mxODBC - Python ODBC Database Interface

The mxODBC Database Interface for Python is a commercial add-on to our open-source eGenix mx Extension Series, providing robust and proven database access for Python on all major platforms, such as Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, Solaris, using a single API across all platforms.

mxODBC provides an easy to use, high-performance, reliable and robust Python interface to ODBC compatible databases such as MS SQL Server and MS Access, Oracle Database, IBM DB2 and Informix , Sybase ASE and Sybase Anywhere, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SAP MaxDB and many more. It is an extension to our mx Base Distribution.

ODBC refers to Open Database Connectivity and is the industry standard API for connecting applications to databases. In order to facilitate setting up ODBC connectivity, operating systems typically provide ODBC Managers which help set up the ODBC drivers and manage the binding of the applications against these drivers.

On Windows the ODBC Data Source Manager is built into the system. On Mac OS X, the iODBC ODBC manager is part of the the OS, with an optional ODBC manager GUI available as separate download. On Unix platforms, you can choose one of the ODBC managers unixODBC, iODBC or DataDirect, which provide the same ODBC functionality on most Unix systems.

mxODBC works with Python 2.4 - 2.7 and supports 32-bit as well as 64-bit platforms.
