Re: two connections to the same database with DBD::Sybase

in reply to two connections to the same database with DBD::Sybase

From the error message, it looks like a Sybase Client Library limitation. I can't believe this is real, could it be some kind of licensing issue? (what a crappy client library)

    I can't believe it too.

    No, not a licensing issue.

    (what a crappy client library)

    The library isn't that bad. It's more a problem with the TDS protocol not being able to handle multiple statements in one connection. But it should be able to handle two distinct connections to a single server.

    So perhaps it's just a misfeature in DBD::Sybase.

    Actually Client Library is a very good API. It is very orthogonal, and once you start playing with the Open Server API as well you really "get" it!

    The TDS protocol is limited to one active statement per connection (unless you open client side cursors, which you can actually do with Sybase::CTlib...), but that's usually not a problem.
