Python Database API Specification 2.0

This API has been defined to encourage similarity between the Python modules that access databases. By doing this, we hope to achieve a consistency leading to more easily understood modules, code that is generally more portable across databases, and a broader reach of database connectivity from Python.

The interface specification consists of several sections:

  • Module interface

  • Connection objects

  • Cursor objects

  • Type objects and constructors

  • Implementation hints

  • Major changes from 1.0 to 2.0

Comments and questions about this specification may be directed to the SIG for Database Interfacing with Python.

For more information on database interfacing with Python and available packages see the Database Topics Guide on www.python.org.

This document describes the Python Database API Specification 2.0. The previous Version 1.0 version is still available as reference. Package writers are encouraged to use this version of the specification as basis for new interfaces.
