Its been a long time since I have heard the myth that ODBC is slow , something that cinpamoes like OpenLink Software have spent years dispelling If an implementation of a given ODBC Driver happens to be slow that does not mean the ODBC API itself is slow.Some database vendors (like DB2 and others) are now adpoting and promoting ODBC as the preferred API for application development, due to the richness of the API which if written correctly provides just as good performance as their other APIs, ditto for JDBC. ODBC also provides a generic interface for database access across multiple databases enabling application re-use without the need to re-write should one change their database, thereby eliminating the lock in to proprietary APIs, which is always a bad thing
