Oracle Watch : MySQL to Slip Out from Under Oracle's Thumb
Oracle Watch : MySQL to Slip Out from Under Oracle's Thumb "The poorly kept secret of how MySQL is going to work its way out from under its Oracle-induced storage engine dilemma will be made apparent soon, CEO Marten Mickos told me at LinuxWorld on March 5. Namely, the company will be announcing its own transaction storage engine, based on Jim Starkey's work and its acquisition of his one-man, Firebird-based Netfrastructure company. The announcement will come at MySQL's user conference, April 24-27, in Santa Clara."
