Please people... this effort/thread doesn't started to write CDR in
database! Was started to read configurations from databases...
The matter here is: Is ODBC ready to be used to be data support [instead or
joint] to flat config files?

All class 5 switches stores AMA tickets in flat files, but in the most cases
of medium/large companies, those tickets are parsed and stored in large
databases. The great of store directly to a database is (obviously) you
don't need none of those parser to read the tickets and store them.

My 0.02 cents.
