    Connecting to a Database

    How do I connect to a database using SilkTest if I am not using ODBC? Is it really a must to have the ODBC to get connected to a database?

    Is there any other workaround?

    Please advise. thanks.

    Sure.
    One workaround is to get yourself a tool/utility program that does the database connection for you and have SilkTest invoke this program.

    Re: Connecting to a Database

    If ODBC is not an option but OLE-DB is, then it is possible to get a convertor, so that you can set up an ODBC datasource which simply refers straight through to an OLE-DB datasource. Merant make such a thing, certainly.
    I'll be honest here - I have been trying to get this to work in order to test the new OLE-DB functionality in our software, but so far the connection from silktest hasn't worked. So the OLE-DB connectivity has gone down on the list of stuff that requires manual testing because it cannot be automated.
    But the theory's great.

    What database are you using that does not connect through ODBC?
