EGENIX.COM MX COMMERCIAL PACKAGE OVERVIEW:

mxODBC - Generic ODBC 2.0-3.5 interface for Python

     mxODBC is an extension package that provides a Python Database
     API compliant interface to ODBC capable database drivers and
     managers.

     In addition to the capabilities provided through the standard DB
     API it also gives access to a rich set of catalog methods which
     allow you to scan the database for tables, procedures,
     etc. Furthermore, it uses the mxDateTime package for date/time
     value interfacing eliminating most of the problems these types
     normally introduce (other in/output formats are available too).

     mxODBC allows you to interface to more than one database from one
     process, making inter-database interfacing very flexible and
     reliable.  

     The source version includes a varity of preconfigured setups for
     many commonly used databases such as MySQL, Oracle, Informix,
     Solid, SAP DB, Sybase ASA and ASE, DBMaker and many more. The
     precompiled versions for Windows and Linux include the interfaces
     to the standard ODBC manager on these platforms to allow for a
     more easily configurable setup.
