ODBC or MSSQLConnection
« on: March 04, 2021, 01:29:24 pm »

I have apps that connect to MSSQL via TODBCConnection. I've heard that it is better to connect with TMSSQLConnection.
Is this true? Why is it "better"? What are differences?

Someone told me that an ODBC driver doesn't support the full set of features that the database does...

My preference would be to use ODBC as a fairly well-supported standard API if possible, but I've certainly come across restrictions with PostgreSQL: I don't know whether it's been added, but Postgres has various notification facilities which were alien to ODBC and there are no doubt others.
