The dax library accesses databases either through their native API (ORACLE, DB2, MySQL) or by ODBC. Prefer the native interface over ODBC for the supported databases, it has less overhead and so is faster.

ODBC has advantages if you don't have a SQL database at all, for example handling DBASE files or connecting to applications like Excel. To access a database where CSL has not yet an native interface you must also use ODBC.
