Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Yes, I know. JavaOne is about Duke, the friendly mascot of Java technology. Created and maintained by James Gosling and all.

But MySQL also introduces Sakila to the JavaOne attendees. Sakila is also friendly, and the mascot of MySQL technology. The dolphin was chosen by MySQL founders Michael “Monty” Widenius and David Axmark, as was its name Sakila (which came from a naming contest in the early days).

Together with Giuseppe (in the picture above) and the rest of the MySQL Community Team, I will be handing out incarnations of Sakila (also seen above in the pic) at CommunityOne and …

With 130 entries in the “MySQL” category and no MySQL-related subcategories, my blog had become impossible to search and navigate easily.

As I wrote in September when …

Symbian enlightened by LAMP
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Followers of the Forum Nokia Developer Discussion Boards saw interesting pre-announcements last month:

Nokia has ported MySQL and PHP to Symbian.

With 165 million cumulative Symbian smartphones shipped since the formation of Symbian and currently 134 Symbian smartphone models commercially available, it would be interesting to see the effects on the 8,134 third-party Symbian applications commercially available by what Nokia calls “PAMP”.

MySQL offers one of the most complete selection of application programmer interface support. Some of these are in the form of a library (such as the MySQL C API library) while others are in the form of a driver (such as the ODBC driver). For most people/situations - the choice of which interface to use is obvious as it is often dictated by the programming language in use (JDBC for Java for example).

Here are some reasons for considering the ODBC interface. Note; some of these reasons can apply to more than one interface.

  • Cross-platform
  • SQL Standard
  • C/C++ Programming Language
