I’m happy to announce the release of mojoPortal 184.108.40.206.
Its been over 3 months since the last packaged release which is a bit longer than usual, my general motto is release early and release often but I had set a goal for this release to include the Newsletter which took a little longer than anticiapted. I was also side tracked on some other projects and of course we had several major holidays and family events to sidetrack me too. As a result this is a significant new release with a lot of new goodness.
The thread is on joelonsoftware.com and the question is about open source databases :
Quick issue, everyone. My company currently uses SQL Server, but we’re going to look at open-source databases because of MS’s crooked licensing rules (to be honest, they only have one SQL license, and are running it on a two-processor machine). They don’t want to shell out the extra $6,000 for another one, and I don’t blame them.
We need a reliable database for handling lots of data (e-commerce site with about 70,000 products). The ability to use stored procedures is a big thing. Although it’s not a huge deal, it’d be nice to be able to automate jobs for maintenance/updating (product stock, for example). I’m aware of both MySQL and Postgres, and a few others that don’t seem to be “enterprise-ready” as it were (Firebird? SqlLite?).
Jaybird 2.1.2 is released. It is a bugfix release that targets two main issues, JDK 6.0 compatibility and support for INSERT…RETURNING statements. More info at the JDBC Driver page.

The following was sent to Charles Babcock at Information week in reply to an article entitled:
As a developer and administrator of the Firebird Project I completely reject the statement you made in the above article.
“The somewhat moribund Firebird project, for example, is listed with 195 identified defects, of which it has verified zero and fixed zero. The active Firefox browser project, on the other hand,
has fixed 370 bugs, verified 56 and faces another 246 to verify and fix.”
