MySQL

The MySQL database system is a free implementation of an SQL-based (Structured Query Language) database system. MySQL has been successfully deployed for a number of high-end applications on Web sites such as NASA, Yahoo!, and Slashdot. In addition to the database package itself, MySQL has JDBC and ODBC drivers available, making it accessible from any platform supporting these standards, including Microsoft Windows.

Note

This note is for those of you who are familiar with Microsoft's SQL Server offering. The letters SQL are pronounced S-Q-L, not Sequel as Microsoft wants you to believe. MySQL, as documented on www.mysql.com, is pronounced My S-QL.
