ODBC PowerPack 1.3.0 released

Version [Sep 16, 2020]

This version brings brand new JDBC Bridge driver which can connect data using any JDBC Driver in  ODBC Apps (e.g. Excel). Many vendors dont provide ODBC Driver because its expensive and complex to build so they simply supply you Java based JDBC Driver, however these JDBC drivers work only with Java based Apps and not in apps which are written in other systems (i.e. .net or C++). For example Excel, Informatica cant consume data from JDBC Driver directly. This is where you can use ZappySys JDBC Bridge Driver for ODBC Compliant Apps or Consume data in SQL Server via Data Gateway.
