The mxODBC Zope Database Adapter (Zope DA) allows you to easily connect your Zope installation to just about any database backend on the market today, giving you the reliability of the commercially supported product mxODBC and the flexibility of the ODBC standard as middle-tier architecture.

Unlike Zope's ZODBC Zope DA, the mxODBC Zope DA works on Windows, Linux (32-bit and 64-bit), Mac OS X, Solaris, AIX and FreeBSD using the same interface on all platforms.

The mxODBC Zope DA implements high performance thread-safe connection pooling and multiple physical connects per logical Zope connection. You can safely run Z SQL Methods in parallel, achieving a much better throughput than ZODBC Zope DA or similar Zope database adapters under heavy load. This makes it ideal for deployment in ZEO Clusters and Zope hosting environments where stability and high performance are a top priority.

New in this Release

The new version includes a number of enhancements which make the mxODBC Zope Database Adapter even more robust and reliable.

mxODBC Zope DA now supports 64-bit ODBC on Linux and FreeBSD, making it the ideal database interface for Zope on 64-bit servers. We have also added IBM AIX 5.3 support.
