Subject Torque and LDBC
Date Mon, 08 Mar 2004 14:47:56 GMT

I read about Torque on your web site. What about if your are using the cross database JDBC
driver 'LDBC' (http://ldbc.sf.net)?
As of now, LDBC supports Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, IBM DB2, PostgreSQL, PointBase,
HSQLDB and InterBase / Firebird up to some point.

Some words about LDBC: LDBC (Liberty DataBase Connectivity) is a JDBC driver that provides
vendor-independent database access. With LDBC, your application will just work on all major
databases and you don't have to change any source code. LDBC is based on ANSI-SQL and JDBC.
LDBC radically simplifies porting of existing or new applications to new databases. The main
components of LDBC are a JDBC driver and a SQL grammar converter. LDBC completely shields
the application from database vendor specific code. Included SQL grammar and JDBC API documentation.
LDBC is not meant to be a persistence layer or object relation mapping. The main idea of LDBC
is providing a standard way to access a SQL database from Java.
