 2. jTDS - 100% java JDBC 2.0 provider available at
 This will provide the TDS functionality required for the 
 System.Data.SqlClient, Mono.Data.SybaseClient, and Mono.Data.TdsClient 
 ADO.NET providers in Mono.
+------- Additional Comments From tim@timcoleman.com  2002-10-19 19:09 -------
+The TDS provider will be written in pure C#.
+Two namespaces will be created.
+Mono.Data.TdsClient.Internal will contain all of the internal 
+protocol implementation.
+Mono.Data.TdsClient will provide a set of classes used for testing 
+generic TDS functionality.
+Any provider which uses TDS functionality can import files from the 
+Mono.Data.TdsClient.Internal namespace.  Currently, these will be 
+System.Data.SqlClient and Mono.Data.SybaseClient, providers for 
+Microsoft SQL Server and Sybase databases respectively.
+1. Ville will be stubbing and creating the Mono.Data.TdsClient 
+2. Simultaneously, I (Tim Coleman) will be creating the 
+Mono.Data.TdsClient.Internal namespace.
+3. Once these are done, then the Mono.Data.TdsClient namespace can 
+more or less be ported directly to System.Data.SqlClient, as the 
+functionality is very similar with a few tweaks.
+4. Once this is done, if we can track down a Sybase database, we will 
+port it to Mono.Data.SybaseClient.
+This native code will be written by examining code from jTDS and from 
+FreeTDS, as well as any other documentation available on the TDS
