[erlang-questions] Connecting to MySQL: ODBC or Native driver?
Fri Sep 19 09:34:16 CEST 2008
I need to connect to some existing MySQL databases. Version is 5.1.
OTP version is R12B-2
Platform is MacOSX for development and Linux for deployment.
From what I see, there are 3 solutions:
Pros: odbc module is supplied in the standard erlang distribution
Cons: probably slower and certainly one layer too much, especially on
MacOSX and Linux
2) Native driver from ProcessOne
3) "Enhanced" native driver from ProcessOne in ErlyWeb
I tried (1) and (3) but didn't manage to connect. Before going
further, I would like your opinion on which path to take.
Thanks a lot,
