Chapter 24. Introduction

The intention of the ADBC packages is to provide an data base API which allowes to implement application independent of the used data base system.

This interface has to be understood as an experimental interface which is under permanent discussion in the Ada 95 community. The discussion will be done via comp.lang.ada and the gnade development list. The GNADE package will contain only the stable versions of the ADBC interface. All intermediate versions will be released as seperate packages.

The interface does not rely on any other components of the GNADE project and can be used stand alone.
