In the case we probably will use formspider, my boss wonder if it is compatible with mysql? Because all of our present automation applications store data into mysql database.

Thank you

Hi Pnennen,

Formspider is installed to the Oracle database and its programming language is PL/SQL. The only way that I know to interact with a MySQL database from within Oracle is to use a DB Link.

I think this way of working is OK if you have your data mostly in he Oracle database and you only occasionally need to access the MySQL database. However, if all your data is in MySQL, and you will use Oracle just to be able to develop your application with Formspider, we are very humbled by your consideration, but I don't think Formspider is the best choice.

Kind Regards, Yalim
