You can use ODBC-ODBC bridge like Easysoft's OOB. I use it for udmsearch 
(search engine -  http://search.mnogo.ru) and it works, but was wondering 
about amount of work to make it work with TDS to gain speed. Basically it 
doesn't do anything fancy - mostly just SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, 
because it support many other databases. All database stuff is one file and 
maybe it wouldn't be too much work. Any examples for simple application 
that connect to database, does some SELECT and shows the results?
