Comments - Embedded MariaDB Interface

I need a database in GUI application, which is distributed to end users. Normal DB server would greatly complicate installation of app.

you can use named pipes for communication, and you can assure the names of the pipes are unique. I.e you can start an instance, which is private to your application, and it does not need to be per-machine.

I can agree to extent, it can (just slightly) complicate the logic of the GUI app, as it would need to incorporate the startup and shutdown. But as for installation, as compared to current, libmariadb.dll, and mysqld.exe are needed, and nothing more.


libmysqld.dll requires charsets and errmsg.sys, I guess, mysqld.exe also requires those
