The Jasmine C-API is a lot simpler and better than ODBC. This is a DLL

The problem then becomes how to get from Squeak to C methods in a DLL..

One idea, which may be sensible depending upon your application, is to write
a separate Windows executable that makes all the Jasmine calls, and talks
TCP/IP to Squeak.
