postgresql port?

Postby ceco » Wed Sep 28, 2005 7:41 am

Hi,

great product, but is there a plan/interest to porting it to postgresql (or any other database i.e. firebird).
When I find a time I can try to help and/or to contribute for a postgresql port if there is an interest.
Best regards

ceco

Yes we'd like to support additional databases. Most of the work would be around the tools since at the moment we just wrap some of the MySQL tools. If you'd like to try; grab the source code and you can poke around.

The databse code is, by and large, found in com.zimbra.cs.db. There are a few MySQL-isms in there that may cause problems when you try to port to a different database: a few uses of GROUP_CONCAT (maybe done via a user-defined aggregate?), a couple calls to LAST_INSERT_ID, etc. But, in general, it should just be portable vanilla SQL.
