Thanks, I will try .NET connector.
A last question: I read on the mono page that also ODBC is supported,
however, didn't test it. Has anybody experience with it?
In general, which way to access a MySQL database is the right one, suggested
by Mono, or which one is preferable and why?
Ways of accessing MySQL:
- using an ODBC driver
- or a native provider, like ByteFx or rather its successor .NET
(Because I'm using ByteFX and was thinking if there is a better way...)
