This project was developed because the only ADO.NET compliant driver is commercial. This driver is free (GPL).

There were another solutions as OLEDB driver and ODBC.NET but the first is very limited and was abandoned by the owner in the year 2001, the second solution ODBC.NET doesn't works fine because ODBC.NET is a very advanced driver not very compatible with the GPL ODBC driver of MySQL.


Primary objectives

  • Avoid using more than one DLL (assembly) .
  • Support all SQL basic functions .
  • Additional features.

Secondary objectives

  • Make an utility library in order to make queries faster using all powerful of .NET Framework.
  • Make it mono-compatible in order to use this driver in linux platforms.

License objective

This driver It's mine, that is, I am the only developer. This will persist in order to maintain this piece of software free. Because of this, this software is copyrighted as GPL, in order to retain ownership to avoid falling in commercial hands.
