MySQL Applications and Deployment - MySQL

    Default MySQL Applications and Deployment

    Hi. I'm looking to build a stock database using MySQL and then give
    away/sell the product (application and database). I'm looking for
    some top level architecture and price info. If you've built and sold
    an application (or you just know the answers) please help me out.
    I've developed with Java interfacing to MySQL, but I've never tried to
    send my apps to anyone or sell the apps.

    1) When I give/sell my Java programs to someone, what is the minimal
    MySQL footprint that I need to provide? Will the user need to install
    MySQL or can I provide a set of MySQL files that my program can read/
    write? I'm looking to place everything needed to run my app (my Java
    and database) on a CD, and then have an install tool/script set it up
    for the end user. I don't want the end user to even know that the
    data is stored in a MySQL database (although I don't want to hide it
    either).

    2) What ballpark level of cost and I looking at to do this? What
    will I need to pay for a commercial license to legally sell my
    application with MySQL? What is the ballpark level of cost I will
    need to pass on to the end user to license the minimal run-time MySQL
    footprint?

    Thanks much for your help.

    I think what you are looking for is an embedded db - mysql provides
    one.

    Also - is there any reason you need to go with mysql only? As of Java
    6, the jdk comes prepackaged with a db called Derby (from apache,
    formerly from IBM called Cloudscape) - it can be used as an embedded
    db engine. Check out some products like Continuum which use Derby as
    an embedded db and distribute the product as a complete suite.

    The Apache Open For Business ERP which works with Java 1.4.X newer includes
    Derby as proof of concept, and has a configuration file that is used to change
    the connection from Derby to MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, MS-SQL, etc.... for
    production installation.
