"In this age of the full-service internet, the demand for
bigger and badder websites will only increase. To meet the demands
of these full-service websites, the SQL database servers come into
play. One of the more popular SQL servers available for
download on the internet is MySQL. MySQL is not released under a
full GPL free license, but for some applications, like intranets,
it is free to use. For most users, a $200 license will have to be
purchased. However, this price compares very favourably with other
companies producing database backends for the commercial market,
like IBM, Oracle and Sybase."
"For the purpose of this demonstration, we will be setting up a
guestbook, using a perl and a MySQL backend. An SQL backend
solution for this application would be most appropriate for
companies such as GuestWorld who run free public guestbooks."
