What method of DB access is best from c++?

P: n/a
I'm just coming back to C++ from a very long stint with VB. In VB I used
ADO to access databases.
Visual C++ supports ADO and a plethora of other methods. I'm trying to
streamline my nasty learning curve and focus on the best method. I'm trying
to focus on standard c++ because I would like to use what I learn in Linux.
So does anyone have suggestions for the best database access methods? I
should mention that I want my DB access not to be restricted to DB type, so
I'm looking for the most generic method for say SQL, Access or Oracle, maybe
even Postgressql.

Thanks

Maybe have a look at OTL it is a template library it supports a few database
(but certainly not all).
