it' funny - you already mentioned THE driver to go with! We had done an evaluation (more than one and a half year back now) where JSQLConnect clearly took the crown ;p - performancewise. I think that was version 2.26 or so. We had really challenging performance goals. It was an online ticketing service with more than 2000 clients - JSQLConnect performed really very well! My recommendation.
Thanks! Good to hear it.
They changed their pricing scheme however, and they no longer (seem to) offer the 50- or 100- distribution license deal that they used to. We need a site dev license and about 50 distribution licenses. Now they look expensive. Well worth it to me!! but it's not my money :(
