LinuxProgramming: MySQL goes mobile with Motorola

Mar 27, 2001, 16:24 (1 Talkback[s])

"Motorola today announced a relationship with MySQL AB, an Open Source database management system provider, that calls for Motorola to offer application developers the MySQL database as part of a developers' toolkit from Motorola's iDEN Subscriber Group. Using this database, developers will be able to write applications that allow users to wirelessly access information in databases through Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition (J2ME) technology-enabled devices. MySQL was originally developed to handle very large databases much faster than existing solutions and has been successfully used in highly demanding production environments for several years."

"This relationship has been established to facilitate the development of applications for Motorola's J2ME technology-enabled multiple communication handsets. These handsets will be available beginning in April through iDEN network operators including Nextel Communications, Southern LINC and Pacific Wireless Technologies in the United States and TELUS in Canada. The MySQL database allows developers to create client/server applications which access information wirelessly from host servers. MySQL AB will offer qualified support to iDEN developers."
