News & Events
Below you will find some items highlighting the development path of ExtSQL (newest
items at the top).
- November 4, 2009 - ExtSQL featured in Linux Pro Magazine (Dec 2009, Issue 109)
We were very
pleased to see Linux Pro accept an article on ExtSQL (click here for their article).
It was a great way to get the word out to both MySQl and PostreSQL communities. While
still considered an ALPHA release for just 7.4.x, we now have working patches for PostgreSQL.
- June 2009 - Development progress on PostgreSQL patch set
Getting into PostgreSQL was a completely different mind set! Our engineers were
pleased with the logical structure of the PostgreSQL code and design. We appreciated
the excellent README files and high-level design documentation. No offense
to the MySQL folks, but PostgreSQL looked a lot more polished under the hood!
The parser was our biggest hurdle and also the different memory architecture of
using a separate process to service a client connection versus a thread (at least
in the 7.4.x code base).
- October 2, 2008 - News release announcing the availability of ExtSQL
After years of internal development we were happy to make it available to the public. Quite
of bit of work had been done in creating a multi OS/Hardware development environment. This
initial version only works in MySQL® installations
(for release text).
We also alert developers on a couple of the MySQL mailing lists.
