[Glass] ODBC to GemStone and ODBC from GemStone

Hi guys,

I remember a presentation about GemStone status and future in which you
mention ODBC. At that moment I was interested about it and I asked. It was
supposed to be included in some version of GemStone. This "ODBC" you were
talking about was NOT an ODBC client as I imagined, but the other way
around: that any ODBC client from any language could query GemStone. So
first question, was this released? what is the satus?

Say I want to build some reports using Java (JasperReports or whatever)
would I need "GemBuilder for java"?  Seems a bit overkill to me since it is
not a whole client/server application. That's why I was asking about ODBC.
Of course, there could be other workarounds but just wondering.

Finally, I guess there is no generic ODBC client for GemStone right, so the
only relational DB I can connect right now is Oracle (with GemConnect
product)? Has anyway workarounded the scenario where you had to interact
with another relational DB than Oracle?

Thanks in advance,
