Current recordset does not support updating adodb
The Microsoft SQL Server Network Library, a proprietary access method specific to Microsoft SQL Server, is also included in the MDAC.
Developers of Windows applications are encouraged to use ADO or ADO.
NET managed providers and ODBC drivers), and the database itself.
These component layers are all made available to applications through the MDAC API.
This was done because different applications need access to different types and sources of data, and do not necessarily need to know how to access technology-specific functionality.
The technology is conceptually divided into consumers and providers.
The first version of MDAC was released in August 1996.
At that time Microsoft stated MDAC was more a concept than a stand-alone program and had no widespread distribution method.
Net-Lib is also able to support the impersonation of a logged in user's security context for protocols that support authenticated connections (called trusted connections).
The primary Net-Lib consists of a Super Socket Net-Lib and the Shared Memory Net-Lib, while there are numerous secondary Net-Libs, including TCP/IP and named pipes network libraries (named pipes are a method of communicating with other processes via a system-persistent pipeline that is given an identity).
The Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server (SQLOLEDB) communicates via primary Net-Libs.
Each Net-Lib supported network protocol has a separate driver (not to be confused with a device driver), and has support for a session layer in its protocol stack.
There are two general types of Net-Lib: the primary and the secondary.
