Here is the full change log with security fixes for 2.0.x in gentoo portage system
I have been configuring a fair number of Linux database servers for a line-of-business application; it runs the Firebird SQL database in server mode only (no application code at all – just DB).
All of these are the wonderful Dell PowerEdge 2950 units with the PERC6i RAID controller, and my typical configuration is 6x 146G 15k SAS drives. These are the highest-performance, highest capacity solution in 3.5″ drives.
An introductory article about using the new Generic Database Output Module
This modules supports a large number of database systems via libdbi. Libdbi abstracts the database layer and provides drivers for many systems. Drivers are available via the libdbi-drivers project. As of this writing, the following drivers are available:
Rsyslog is an enhanced multi-threaded syslogd. Among other features, it offers support for on-demand disk buffering, reliable syslog over TCP, writing to MySQL and PostgreSQL databases, fully configurable output formats (including great timestamps), the ability to filter on any part of the syslog message, and on-the-wire message compression. It is designed as a drop-in replacement for stock syslogd and thus is able to work with the same configuration file syntax. Of course, some enhanced features require changing the configuration file, but in general, this should be fairly easy.
Release focus: Major feature enhancements
This release has the ability to convert text files into syslog. A new libdbi-based output plugin has been written. This adds six additional databases (including Firebird and Oracle) to the supported database set. This release contains small bugfixes. It is a recommended release for all version 3 users.
[ED:There is an nice firebird mention ]
Using Apache, Webware and Firebird as the database I set out to build something.
Firebird? Yes anything to avoid the MySQL bandwagon. I couldn’t say for sure now, but at the time Firebird was far superior to MySQL. The Firebird team didn’t think that ACID properties, foreign key constraints, stored procedures etc. were just some esoteric optional extras for something with pretensions to being an RDBMS.
I want to exchange some ideas. I have a class to connect to the database Firebird. All classes that need access to the database is inherited this class. What is the best way to make connection to the database?
Some Leap Years and Division by Zeoro example in different database systems
The main purpose of SchemaProber is to provide a lightweight representation of a database schema. It doesn’t do anything except relay information from the database. Here’s the class diagram for SchemaProber
