digitalmars.D.announce - D DBI has been revived

Hello Everyone.

A bit over a year ago, Jeremy Cowgar started this project. While he did 
an excellent job, he hasnít been heard from in over a year. I started 
working on this project in April and I hope to do as well as Jeremy did, 
but be here to stay.

D DBI has also been updated today to version 0.2.0. The information is 
available on the changelog at 
http://www.dsource.org/projects/ddbi/wiki/ChangeLog. The API was 
slightly changed, so be sure to take a look at it.

Brad has informed me that he is working on FreeTDS, which should give us 
MSSQL and Sybase support. I have also been working on interfacing D DBI 
to several other databases. The three that I currently have under 
development are InterBase, mSQL, and Oracle. Which of those do you think 
should be my highest priority?

With luck and a little work, hopefully D DBI can become as well known as 
the Perl DBI library.

I have with Python's database libraries is that they keys are always coerced into being strings...which does foul things to their sort, if they are integers, say, and also means that you are frequently doing things like converting keys back and forth (I'd occasionally like to save a record by epochal time...possibly extended to 64 bits, that would allow me to record events as accurately as the system clock will report until the end of the universe, but not if I have to do it as a string. In that case I need to figure a 7-bit character code (minus the control characters unless I like asking for trouble) packing of the data. Ugh! (Just thought I'd mention while you are still designing the thing.)

Hi James,
I vote for Oracle.(and probabely I am able to contribute the Open Ingres
interface)
I still wonder wether it is possible to create something similar to gnome db
http://www.gnome-db.org/  based on D DBI and DWT.

It would be great if you could provide an interface to Ingres. I've never used GNOME-DB, but it looks like a great project and it should be possible to make something similar with D DBI and DWT. I think it should be a separate project though. Any takers?
