wo wir gerade beim SQL Server miesmachen sind

da gibts höchst interessante Webseiten zu. Der bei OpenSource Entwicklern allseits beliebte mySQL Server zeigt, das sich genaues Planen und Nachdenken im Bezug auf die Wahl der Waffen lohnt:

“I chose MySQL to use as my database, since I was writing on Linux, in C, and it just seemed like the easiest path. Can someone please say “you were so wrong”? MySQL has to the worst DB engine out there. It doesn’t (ok, just added) even have support for SUBQUERIES! Barely has support for multiple charsets. And… binary(20) is NOT a binary field 20 bytes long. It’s a char(20). You can’t execute multiple commands in a single query. It’s embarrassing to open source really. I don’t know who could argue that MySQL is competition for SQL Server or Oracle and keep a straight face. Check this list out: http://sql-info.de/mysql/gotchas.html (I really love the part about date handling.)”

Besonders der Link zu “MySQL Gotchas” ist höchst interessant. Lohnt sich auf jedenfall mal anzuschauen.
