SAP DB Programming InterfacesSAP DB is open to many programming languages via open interfaces that separate database and application logic for better scalability.
For developing SAP DB, the following programming interfaces can be used.
Support for DBISAP DB supports DBI via DBD::ODBC.
From version 0.31, the module DBD::ODBC uses Perl with the SAP DB ODBC-driver.
(Thanks to Flemming Frandsen and the developers of DBD::ODBC.)
You have installed the SAP DB ODBC-driver.
Working with a driver manager:
The modules DBD::SAP_DB and SAP::DBTech::sapdb are not maintained any more. We recommend to use DBD::ODBC instead.
From version 4.0.3, PHP 4 accesses SAP DB via PHP's Unified ODBC and the SAP DB ODBC-driver.
Similar to Perl, this can be performed using a driver manager.
Support for OLE DB, ADO, DAO, RDO and .NET
Microsoft provides components for using these interfaces via ODBC.
