Automatically freeing a cursor

When an application uses a cursor, it usually sends a FREE statement to the database server to deallocate memory assigned to a cursor after it no longer needs that cursor.

Execution of this statement involves of message requests between the application and the database server. When the AUTOFREE is enabled, HCL OneDB™ ODBC Driver saves message requests because it does not need to execute the FREE statement. When the database server closes an insert cursor, it automatically frees the memory that it has allocated for it.
