Hi J-L,

Quite a while ago I started to write yet another SQL library.
The project can be found at

My library has very little in common with your library. While your library
mainly fucused on creating valid SQL strings (please correct me if I am
my library is targeted against prepared statements as function objects and
asynchronous operations. Creation of SQL strings is out of scope.

All it does (or rather "will do") is wrap the C-APIs of Firebird, MySQL,
Oracle Call Interface, PostgreSQL and SQLite3. I do not really think that
library is ready to present to the public, but it might be interesting to
combine our libraries or use them together as a base for a higher level

Currently my MySQL backend is the most feature rich one. It supports
operations, statements as function objects, boost::optional<T> for fields
may be NULL, gregorian::date for field DATE, posix_time::time_duration for
and posix_time::ptime for DATETIME.

Please have a look at the example at

cheers, Daniel
