Update the existing LS ODBC method to keep up with the current environment

Limitation 1 : LS ODBC cannot work on Notes Client installed on Mac OS

Limitation 2 : Does not return error generated by the target database, instead a generic LS:DO error is returned.

I would be happy to use other alternative for Domino to write to other relational databases, but AFAIK some sort of ODBC driver is needed.

    I don't think that I created this but I do have some experience in using LS ODBC so I thought I weigh in.

    Personally I think that using JDBC meant a more complicated setup. You would need to find the jar file containing said JDBC driver (Any clue on which one to use ?), wrap it on a java library and possibly use LS2J if you are only proficient in lotuscript.

    If JDBC is indeed the way forward then at least make it so that using it is as easy as using LS:DO. This would most likely mean exposing the corresponding class and method to lotuscript.

    As for why I use LS:DO ? Well, primarily for integration to other system that require writing into a relational db. I have also use this extensively to export Notes data into relational db.

    No plans to implement ODBC support for MacOS. JDBC is the preferred solution in your situation.
    If this is not solving your situation, can you please explain why it needs to be ODBC?

    ODBC was originally developed by Microsoft as Windows only.

    Use JDBC.
