The Easysoft XML-ODBC Server allows client applications to access ODBC compliant databases using simple requests in XML over TCP/IP. A client application sends an SQL request in XML to the Easysoft XML-ODBC Server. The request is executed via a standard ODBC data source and the results are returned to the client, again in XML. The Easysoft XML-ODBC Server can be used with any ODBC driver available for Windows, Linux and major Unix platforms. Client applications can be developed in any language and for any device with TCP/IP capability, including PDA and other wireless systems.
