ODBC - Driver


An ODBC driver is just a shared library that implements the ODBC API that provides a common set of function to be able to connect to a data source.

You can then for instance on Linux:

  • try to load them: dltest /path/to/driverFile.so
  • see their dependency: ldd /path/to/driverFile.so

ODBC drivers are available for most of the databases:

  • Oracle,
  • SQL Server,
  • Sybase,
  • DB2 etc.

Each type of database has a different ODBC driver.
