You might want to have a look at SQLOS. See http://codespeak.net/z3/sqlos

You need to implement a Database Adapter for adodbapi. See


for examples. It is pretty easy.

No, the connection is kept as far as I can tell.

You would have to write special application-level code to handle this. For 
example, you could try to send a test query to check for the connection. If 
no response is received, you create a new connection.
