The Pervasive PSQL data provider is an ADO.NET managed data provider, built with 100% managed code. The data provider is a native wire protocol provider, which means that the data provider will not have to call out to unmanaged code—code outside of the .NET Framework—in the form of a database client.

The Pervasive PSQL data provider enables you to connect to Pervasive PSQL v9.x and v10 databases.

The strong-named assemblies for the Pervasive PSQL data provider placed in the Global Assembly Cache (GAC) during installation.

Values set in the connection string cannot be changed by the connection properties.

You can improve performance significantly if you enable the data provider to use connection pooling. With connection pooling, you avoid the network I/O needed to create a new connection.
