Subject Don't do "generics"...
Author Kevin Lingofelter

I bet Helen knows what's next...=)

In Helen's book, she mentions that generic layers (ODBC, BDE, etc) are
not recommended unless necessary. In context, the recommendation is
based on the fact that these layers provide too much abstraction to
the transaction. (hmm..almost poetic).

I am in the intermediate stages of an ASP application and I use ODBC
to access Firebird. I think I fall under the "unless it's necessary"
exception, but thought I better consider other options, if available.

Is anyone doing ASP programming using an interface other than ODBC? Do
I have other options?
