A friend of mine -- actually a business partner -- that comes from a
world like yours is loving to work with Python since I convinced him
about it.  One thing that he always complain about is the absence of
components like TDatabase, TQuery, TDBEdit, TDBGrid, etc.  (He's being a
DBA for the last 20+ years --- where the '+' probably means more 5 or 6
years ;-D)

What are you using to replace those in your wxPython apps?  I really
don't know them and I am not being able to help him with that.

I've seen, though, the wxODBC family but he always tells me that there
are several penalties in performance for not using the native drivers in
critical applications...  What is your opinion about it?

Be seeing you,
Godoy.     <godoy at>
