New Revision: 782399

URL: http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?rev=782399&view=rev
Log:
Add windows build notes before any 2.2.X release, which should help
users with the integration notes for obtaining 3rd party db drivers.

This file was shipped in the tarball as a dist artifact, but it
better belongs in the httpd tree to warn users about the first pipe
handling issue if they are rolling their own.

+New version of APR
+------------------
+
+Note that the included APR is now version 1.3, which adds several
+subtle changes in the behavior of file handling, pipes and process
+creation.  Most importantly, there is finer control over the handles
+inherited by processes, so the mod_fastcgi or mod_fcgid modules must 
+be updated for httpd-2.2.9 to run correctly on Windows.
+
+Most other third party modules are unaffected by this change.
+
+
+Source corrections applied
+--------------------------
+
+The -win32-src.zip package includes corrections to the Makefile.win
+build file so that .mak based builds work.  The package also corrects
+the default to disable IPV6 support.  These patches are summarized in
+the httpd-2.2.9-win32-src.applied.patch file.
+
+
+Connecting to databases
+-----------------------
+
+With APR-util 1.3.0, the MySQL and FreeTDS drivers do not compile
+on Windows.  There is no Microsoft SQL Server client or ODBC client
+at the present time.
+
+Three driver connectors are provided in the binary distribution, for
+SQLite3, PostgreSQL and Oracle.  They require you to install the actual 
+corresponding client drivers.
+
+The sqlitedll.zip binary file can be obtained from;
+
+http://www.sqlite.org/download.html
+
+note that this binary was built with version 3.5.9 (earlier and
+later version 3.5 driver .dll's may work.)
+
+The Oracle Instant Client - Basic driver can be obtained from
+
+http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/tech/oci/instantclient/htdocs/winsoft.html
+
+and note that this binary was built against version 11.1.0.6.0,
+other version 11.1 drivers may work.
+
+The PostgreSQL binaries may be obtained from
+
+http://www.postgresql.org/ftp/binary/v8.3.1/win32/
+
+and note that this binary was built against version 8.3.1-1, and
+again it may work with other 8.1 version .dll's.
+
+For whichever database backend you configure, the corresponding driver
+.dll's must be in your PATH (and in the systemwide path if used for 
+a service such as Apache httpd).
