Hi there!

I'm new to FUDforum, currently exploring the depth of the data directory, including the sql sub-directory.
What I would like to know is whether anyone ever has used the odbc layer to connect to a database.
Or is this impossible due to any design issues in FUDforum?
What I would like to do in particular is use FUDforum with dbms like Informix or SapDB. Comments appreciated!

Stephan

FUDforum supports 2 database systems, MySQL and PostgreSQL support for other database systems is not planned for in the near future or far future..

OK, but would it be possible by adding a new subdirectory within the data\sql directory, adjusting the scripts from one of the previous abstractions?
And if so, what else would have to be adjusted?

All of the code inside the forum utilizes FUDforum's database abstraction layer with the exception of upgrade/install scripts that in some cases simply have swtiches for each type of a database. The sql/db_type/ contains the database structure in addition to db.inc file that is the wrapper around the native database functions.
If you write support for let's say odbc you will then need to modify upgrade/install scripts to also support odbc. Although for the most part upgrade script uses database abstraction layer as well, with the exception of the code responsible for SQL table upgrading.
