Connectors now available to the MySQL®community as part of the MariaDB open source project
So … We (Monty Program & SkySQL) have just announced the immediate availability of the connectors, ‘MariaDB Client Library for C and MariaDB Client Library for Java Applications’, to the wider MySQL® database community in the permissive LGPL licence.
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 for users involved with 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 & the databases can talk to each other.
As part of our 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.
Up until recently, our two companies had been working on the connectors as a joint internal project used for specific customer requirements and they 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 & MariaDB databases. Commercial maintenance & support for the servers and connectors will be available via SkySQL’s Enterprise Data Suite.
