Subject [jira] Commented: (CAY-808) FoxPro adapter
Date Thu, 02 Apr 2009 11:56:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CAY-808?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12694973#action_12694973

Ari Maniatis commented on CAY-808:
----------------------------------

There is no issue around the license of FoxPro, as long the code committed to Cayenne is Apache
licensed. If you'd like to see this code incorporated into Cayenne, please have a look at
porting it across to the Cayenne 3.0 namespace (that will be trivial), ensuring it is well
commented and works for you. Then attach the updated code to this task. At the moment, I don't
believe any of the Cayenne developers use or have access to FoxPro so it is very hard to test.

> I've written a FoxPro adapter that is good enough to connect to a FoxPro database to
fish out basic fields.
> Currently all committed Cayenne adapters include support for reverse engineering and
schema creation. I think that's overkill for MS Access and FoxPro. FoxPro and MS Access would
only be used in applications for bug-by-bug compatibility with some existing application and
not as a backend for Cayenne if the developer has any say in the matter.
> Couldn't Cayenne support adapters of two types: full and simple? Simple being only basic
read/write access?
