We use Mysql-Driver from Josh Miller and it works quite fine.
You can load it via the Squeak Map Package Loader.
When using it with MySQL 5, you have to store the user's passwords with the OLD_PASSWORD()-function, everything else should work fine.

Betreff: [Seaside] Accessing PostgresSQL or MySQL with Squeak


I'm quite new in Smalltalk and Squeak (a few days only) though I've been doing Java and Ruby for some time now. One of the things I wanted to do is to try to access to a relational DB through Squeak, either PostgresSQL or MySQL. I've tried the following:

1. Jim Maynard's Squeak-PosgresSQL client -- can't seem to connect 2. Yanni Chiu's PostgreSQL Client for Squeak -- downloaded it but not sure how to use it 3. MySQL driver at -- throws an error requesting me to change my MySQL client (I'm using MySQL Server 4.1 though)

Anyone from this list can help? I'm planning to write a comprehensive tutorial on how to create a simple web application using Seaside and Squeak, and if possible a relational database. I found that there is really a lack of such a tutorial for someone who is not from a Smalltalk/Squeak background and I would like to contribute such a tutorial. However I'm stuck myself on the relational database part, would appreciate help here. Thanks!
