+yes. Thanks for pointing out.
+TinyInt should return System.Byte. Unfortunately, when I tested with
+MySql, MS runtime returned System.Int16. There might be an issue in
+MySql ODBC driver for windows. When I checked with SqlServer, it was
+returning Byte. However, the MySQL ODBC driver for linux returns
+correct return type.
+The problem is fixed in CVS. 
+NOTE: However, as MySQL ODBC Driver 3.51 returns SQL_C_SSHORT for
+TinyInt column on windows, This will differ in behavior  with linux
+please refer
+for mapping between ODBC DataProvider type to .NET Framework Type.
