       DBIx::Class::Storage::DBI::ADO::Microsoft_SQL_Server - Support for Microsoft SQL Server
       via DBD::ADO


       This subclass supports MSSQL server connections via DBD::ADO.


       The MSSQL specific functionality is provided by DBIx::Class::Storage::DBI::MSSQL.




       "_identity_method" is set to @@identity, as "SCOPE_IDENTITY()" doesn't work with DBD::ADO.
       See "IMPLEMENTATION NOTES" in DBIx::Class::Storage::DBI::MSSQL for caveats regarding this.

   truncation bug
       There is a bug with MSSQL ADO providers where data gets truncated based on the size of the
       bind sizes in the first prepare call:


       The "ado_size" workaround is used (see "ADO providers" in DBD::ADO) with the approximate
       maximum size of the data_type of the bound column, or 8000 (maximum VARCHAR size) if the
       data_type is not available.

       Please report problems with this driver and send patches.

       "LongReadLen" is set to "LongReadLen * 2 + 1" on connection as it is necessary for some
       LOB types. Be aware of this if you localize this value on the $dbh directly.

   binary data
       Due perhaps to the ado_size workaround we use, and/or other reasons, binary data such as
       "varbinary" column data comes back padded with trailing "NULL" chars.  The Cursor class
       for this driver (DBIx::Class::Storage::DBI::ADO::Microsoft_SQL_Server::Cursor) removes
       them, of course if your binary data is actually "NULL" padded that may be an issue to keep
       in mind when using this driver.

   uniqueidentifier columns
       uniqueidentifier columns come back from ADO wrapped in braces and must be submitted to the
       MSSQL ADO driver wrapped in braces. We take care of this transparently in this driver and
       the associated Cursor class (DBIx::Class::Storage::DBI::ADO::Microsoft_SQL_Server::Cursor)
       so that you don't have to use braces in most cases (except in literal SQL, in those cases
       you will have to add the braces yourself.)

   fractional seconds
       Fractional seconds with DBIx::Class::InflateColumn::DateTime are not currently supported,
       datetimes are truncated at the second.
