The mxODBC Connect™ Database Interface for Python allows users to
easily connect Python applications to all major databases on the
market today in a highly portable, convenient and secure way.
Python Database Connectivity the Easy Way
Building on our mxODBC database interface for Python, mxODBC Connect is designed as client-server application, so you no longer need to find production quality database drivers for all platforms you target with your Python application.
Instead, you use an easy to install royalty-free Python client library which
connects directly to the mxODBC Connect database server over the
By removing the need to install and configure ODBC drivers on the
client side and dealing with complicated network setups for each set of
drivers, mxODBC Connect greatly simplifies
deployment of database driven client applications, while
at the same time making the network communication between client and
database server more efficient and more secure.
mxODBC Connect 2.1.5 is a patch level release of our successful mxODBC Connect database
product. It includes these enhancements and
Prevent mxODBC Connect Server from listening on sockets which are
unbound due to a configuration error. The OS will typically assign a
random port and listen on all interfaces, which can pose a security
mxODBC Connect Enhancements
Add allow_clients configuration variable to [Session] config section of
the mxODBC Connect Server. This allows overriding the list accepted
client IP addresses/networks and helps to e.g. allow connections from
clients not on the server's interface networks.
Added "connections" shortcut support for allow_clients to easily access the list of configured networks defined by the connection sections.
Added "all" and "localhost" shortcuts support for allow_clients to simplify allowing any client IP address or only the local machine.
For the full set of changes, including those of the 2.1 series of mxODBC Connect, please check the mxODBC Connect change log.
mxODBC Connect now has full support for input, output and input/output parameters in stored procedures and stored functions, allowing easy integration with existing databases systems.
User Customizable Row Objects
Support for user customizable row objects by adding cursor/connection .rowfactory and .row constructor attributes. When set, these are used to wrap the normal row tuples returned by the .fetch*() methods into dynamically created row objects.
New RowFactory classes to support cursor.rowfactory and cursor.row. These allow dynamically creating row classes that provide sequence as well as mapping and attribute access to row fields - similar to what namedtuples implements, but more efficient and specific to result sets.
Compatible with the latest gevent and greenlet packages. mxODBC
Connect Client will happily work together with the asynchronous
libraries gevent. All it takes is a single configuration entry in the
client side config file.
You are encouraged to upgrade to this latest mxODBC Connect release. When upgrading, please always upgrade both the server and the client installations to the same version - even for patch level releases.
