MySQL Takes Database Reins from SAP

MySQL Takes Database Reins from SAP "MySQL AB Tuesday said it has inked a technology and cross-licensing partnership with SAP AG's (Quote, Company Info) database project in a play that can potentially catapult MySQL into the enterprise limelight. MySQL will take commercial ownership of SAP's SAP DB and become a global technology partner of SAP AG.
The deal, for which financial terms were not made public, should make MySQL's products more attractive to large and medium-sized businesses. Sweden's MySQL will rename SAP DB and will offer it under the free software/open source GNU General Public License (GPL), which means the source code be available at no cost for anyone to read, review, enhance and redistribute."
