Let me first mention that the Books Online should have made it clear that this warning applies only to SNAC data access by applications.
The warning does not apply to Microsoft SQL Server features and products that use SNAC as part of the OLE DB stack, like Linked Servers, SSIS, and SSAS.
, , , , Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) .
However, I still think it’s prudent to use the stand-alone ODBC driver instead of OLE DB for new native applications.
The OLE DB story continues to evolve and I hope we see a roadmap and guidance from Microsoft soon.
This was recently thrown in my face again as part of a question in the Raven DB mailing list. Do you think that those two documents belong to the same category or not?
One of the problems that we discovered was that the user was searching for category 4bf58dd8d48988d1c5941735, and the document had category was 4bf58dd8d48988d14e941735.
You might have noticed that I don’t like Guids all that much.
