    Default What type of db connection should I use?

    There are lots of discussions what type of database connection to use, especially for the web. What will be the fastest type of connection, DSN less, DSN? Should I open and close the db connection on each page or use the application connectionstring?<BR><BR>Can someone clarify what to use?<BR><BR>Magnus
