in thread Can i execute two queries connecting to same DB at a time.

I don't buy your definition of "proper RDBMS", it's way too ad hoc. Made up just to allow you to bash MSSQL. MS SQL has the communication protocol optimized for the common case, "you ask for data, you fetch the data, you ask for some other data, you fetch that data". The requirement of the special coding is caused more by the fact that there is no DBD::MSSQL, but rather a generic DBD::ODBC that has to support a lot more than just the MSSQL. So it cannot transparently handle the more complex cases.

    DBD::ODBC does support multiple active statements.

    Yes, life is quite complex for DBD::ODBC in some places but these are more to do with the a) the ODBC spec being quite loosely defined in places b) the great variations in what ODBC drivers do and don't support c) bugs in ODBC drivers.

    The old "trick" to get multiple active statements was to make SQL Server use dynamic cursors but it had side effects. Now MS have added MARS support multiple active statements are officially documented and supported.

    None of this made any difference to DBD::ODBC since both the "trick" to get dynamic cursors and MARS is done through ODBC and not some specific workaround for SQL Server.
