Posted by jpluimers on 2013/07/17

2 more issues got on-line both close to a 100 pages each:

So the only issues missing are #28, #30 and #31.

Lots of projects did not get it yet, but for connecting to SQL Server: RIP OLE DB

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/07/17

I still see a truckload of projects that connect to SQL Server do this using OLE DB or the Native SQL Client.

All OLE DB access to SQL Server has been deprecated, not only from regular access, but also from SSIS.

These are the only ways you should connect to SQL Server:

  • SqlClient (managed code)
  • JDBC (Java)
  • ODBC (for native code)

For instance, these have been deprecated (for each one, I linked to the oldest SQL Server version where they were made available for):

  3. SQLNCLI10
  4. SQLNCLI11
