Use MariaDB or MySQL for new project?
« on: November 01, 2021, 05:06:48 pm »
Hi guys/gals.  I might be starting a new desktop project on Windows and I would like to use MariaDB or MySQL, free versions, as my database.  I have not used either of these databases with Lazarus/FreePascal before so I am hoping you guys might share any issues that I might encounter using them?

Thanks,
TD  :D

MariaDB/MySQL is one of the most popular SQL based RDBMS that's well known NOT to adhere to the standard. You can see the details here.
If you don't mind that, then it should normally work just fine.

If you decide for MariaDB don't forget to skip version-check
One System to rule them all, One Code to find them,
One IDE to bring them all, and to the Framework bind them,
in the Land of Redmond, where the Windows lie

What do you mean by that?
SQLdb is always checking the right version of the library.
I never could that skipped
Lazarus 2.06 (64b) / FPC 3.0.4 / Windows 10
stucked on Delphi 10.3.1
