Hello there! I have just installed MySql 4.0.18 version and able to launch the server and access the database.<p>The question is, Is it possible to access or use MySql as an embedded database rather than using it as a separate server?</p><p>Thanks in advance... </p>
MySQL has some excellent documentation. It clearly states that the embedded server is available in C/C++ only. If you must use the embedded server, you could probably work it with JNI. Be advised that the embedded server is GPL licensed:
The MySQL source code is covered by the GNU GPL license (see section G GNU General Public License). One result of this is that any program which includes, by linking with libmysqld, the MySQL source code must be released as free software (under a license compatible with the GPL).
