I'm talking unmanaged obviously. I'm curious as to if people use and connect with ODBC or if they use more performance oriented SQL libraries?

I used the MySQL C API and MySQL++.

If you don't want to support multiple database variants(Such as MS SQL, Oracle, etc.) AND/OR want better performance, you use the direct APIs.

I agree with Toolmaker, if you're writing to support a particular database type, then you're far better going with the specific API for that database.
