ODBC connection isn't slow. (Oracle doesn't have an auto commit mode.) What is slow is poorly written applications. If you don't use bind variables and you write crappy code then it will be slow. If you use bind variables and effecient code the it won't. Jim Received on Wed Feb 27 2008 - 06:48:30 CST
