To all,

Raveen’s comment about only “very simple deployments” being supported caught our attention immediately because it did not reflect our own experiences when testing with the large, complex production database in Cove Systems DataFlex “Stream V” ERP application. We found our latest MySQL support to be capable, stable and have very good performance.

We have been in communication with Raveen since soon after his post and have determined that his statement was largely based on problems he was seeing when using MariaDB with multiple databases. The same database structures worked correctly when accessed through the MySQL ODBC driver instead of the MariaDB ODBC driver. We have duplicated Raveen’s reports and our next steps will be to determine the cause of the difference in behavior and the best method to address it.

We will keep you all informed of the outcome.
