Hi all,

I've got a patch ready to submit, which gives us full access to server side
cursors through the ct-library API.
This enables us to handle multiple active result sets through a single
As this is one of the trumpeted features of ADO.NET 2.0 , I think we should
be pretty chuffed about being able to do it too!

I know it sounds like a radical departure, but I would like to "walk
through" the design of this with any interested parties before unleashing
the patch on an unsuspecting world.
I'd also like to know how this fit in with the ODBC driver - will it enhance
our implementation significantly to have cursors available ?

I'll prepare an outline document on how I've changed things, and why. 
I'll forward it to interested parties, so if you consider yourself to be one
of those, just let me know.

Best wishes,
