ODBC OG/ActiveRecords

--- David Heinemeier Hansson <david@loudthinking.com>

Generic ODBC adapters are problematic because the
databases underneath
might use different strategies for stuff like
auto-incremented columns.

Correct !

I know that shashank and a few others were
looking into that for Active Record at some point.

Yes ... but there were a couple of issues (e.g. SELECT
.. TOP syntax, handling of string constants etc) that
prevented me from backporting my adapter seamlessly
into Active Record. I will gladly share my (old) code
with anybody who is interested.
