SQL Point/Blog of the Week

For those of you data hounds out there that use open source databases.

May I suggest the excellent Firebird, coupled with IBexpert, as opposed to mySQL.

I have found it a heck of a lot easier to design and implement stored procedures. It is open source and rock solid.
That is J. J. Walter’s opinion about firebird , expressed in his blog.

Coverity Open Source Defect Scan of Firebird

Hello Firebird Developers,

I’m the CTO of Coverity, Inc., a company that does static source code
analysis to look for defects in code. You may have heard of us or of our
technology from its days at Stanford (the “Stanford Checker“). The
reason I’m writing is because we have set up a framework internally to
continually scan open source projects and provide the results of our
analysis back to the developers of those projects. Firebird is one of
the 32 projects currently scanned at:

Open Development – Firebird related

Gianugo kicked off good discussion on a mailing list (message reposted to the
Feather
blog). It gets at an idea that has been floating around for a
good

while, that Open Source does not equate to Open Development, and
while the difference is glaring obvious to folks who have been
around open source for a while, it is not so to many others.
