A community-developed, commercially supported port of the MariaDB C client API to VSI OpenVMS.
The MariaDB C client API can be used to connect software applications developed in C/C++ to MariaDB and MySQL databases. This port of the API for OpenVMS also includes a language-agnostic API that can be used to develop applications in other languages such as COBOL, FORTRAN, Pascal, and BASIC. In most cases the client application and database will reside on different hosts and communication between client and database would be via TCP/IP.
This OpenVMS port of the MariaDB client API includes all core functionality; however some functionality such as support for Connector/C 3.0 functions is not included in this release. It is anticipated this and other deficiencies will be addressed in future releases.
- OpenVMS 8.4-1H1 I64
- The software must be installed on an ODS-5 enabled disk (the installation will fail if this requirement is not met)
- HP TCP/IP Services V5.7 ECO 2 or VSI TCP/IP. It has not been verified whether the kit works with the MultiNet TCP/IP stack, but there is a good chance that it will.
- If you intend to develop MariaDB database applications on OpenVMS using C or C++ then a C or C++ compiler will be required.
