Ways to execute SQL statements

ODBC includes several functions for executing SQL statements:

  • Direct execution   SQL Anywhere parses the SQL statement, prepares an access plan, and executes the statement. Parsing and access plan preparation are called preparing the statement.

  • Prepared execution   The statement preparation is carried out separately from the execution. For statements that are to be executed repeatedly, this avoids repeated preparation and so improves performance.
