More MySQL 5 in Linux Magazine

Got my copy of Linux Maqazine today. February includes the second in a series that started in December on MySQL 5 features. This month's article is MySQL 5: Stored Functions and Cursors, a look at using stored functions and cursors in building functionality for a stock-tracking application.

The MySQL article is followed by an article on DB4O, an open source object database (not represented in the open source database consortium) . I toyed with PostgreSQL back in the late 90s and recall it having some object orientation that was not easy to get my head around. Curious to see what DB4O is up to, I hadn't heard much about them until now and certainly hadn't seen details about using their object database. It's available in Java or C# source, which is an automatic minus for most LAMP developers.

Good to keep an open mind, right?
