Date 2012/11/29 8:08:40 | Topic: Product News

SkySQL, the trusted provider of open source database solutions, and Monty Program, the home of MariaDB, owned by MySQL®-database-creator Monty Widenius and its employees, today announced the immediate availability of its connectors, 'MariaDB Client Library for C and MariaDB Client Library for Java Applications,' to the wider MySQL® database community in the permissive LGPL license.

With this announcement, the connectors become part of the wider MariaDB open source project, to which users will be able to contribute via relevant online resources.

Good news for open source developers

 

This announcement is relevant to users of applications built in C or Java language that also make use of a MariaDB and/or MySQL database, as these require a connector to ensure that the applications and the databases can talk to each other.

As part of their ongoing efforts to contribute innovation and technology to the wider MySQL database and open source user communities, SkySQL & Monty Program today announced the availability of the MariaDB Client Library for C and MariaDB Client Library for Java Applications. Until today, the two companies had been working on the connectors as a joint internal project used for specific customer requirements. The companies are now making their connectors generally available to the community as part of the MariaDB open source project.

Connectors enable users to connect from a given application to a database, in this case the MySQL and MariaDB databases. Commercial maintenance and support for the servers and connectors will be available via SkySQL's Enterprise Data Suite.
