Hi, I discovered this in the squeak mailing list archive.

Sure does. There's a MySql driver (ported from a VisualWorks one) that
works just dandy. It's not, IIRC, wildly complete or up to date, but I've
successfully done the basic db type things with in.
It's included with Comanche, though I think it might be available
separately too. http://seaweed.cc.gatech.edu/docs/6 The
"WithoutRings" download contains Comanche, which contains the driver.
(Er..if you want it separately, I probably could file it out for you, but
it may be delayed :))
If you search the egroups archive, you probably can find a stand alone
file in for it.
For those of us who like our databases stronger/faster/better than just a
beefed up SQLized filesystem, have the VisualAge Oracle drivers been
ported to Squeak yet? So far, I'm stuck writing up some apache modules in
Perl to handle my database connectivity. It's kinda nifty, the thinnest of
all 'thin clients', simply using HTTP to make a SQL request and get your
results in a CSV but I know there has to be a better way. I hope, anyways.
