    Default Any reason I should NOT use MySQL InnoDB?

    Hi All

    Any reason I should NOT use MySQL InnoDB - as opposed to MyIsam, as I
    want to use Stored Procs, Triggers and Foreign Keys?

    (I would have preferred PostGreSQL, but hosting seems a problem)

    Default Re: Any reason why I should NOT use MySQL InnoDB? - the future ofInnoDB

    InnoDB is transactional engine for MySQL; standard MySQL (MyISAM) tables
    are basically a flat file system with a SQL interface. Interestingly
    Oracle tried to buy MySQL, got turned down, but did succeed in buying
    InnoDB. That's raised a lot of questions about the future of InnoDB
    since it's some form of competition for Oracle. Oracle has said nothing
    will change.

    Apparently in response to the Oracle deal, the folks at MySQL have
    worked with Solid Information Technology to integrate SolidDB as a new
    transactional engine for MySQL. Solid's background is in phone systems,
    huge industrial databases. I really don't know the current status of
    SolidDB for MySQL.

    I've been a big fan of MySQL for many years, but I think this
    uncertainty about the transactional engine isn't doing them any good.
    Within a year I expect to retire my MySQL data in favor of PostgreSQL.

    I'd go for Oracle, just for interoperability reasons.
