FWIW, I've had good luck with the SQLite3 bindings for HDBC on MacOS
X. I had a bit of a hiccup with Linux, but that was only because the
version of SQLite on the Linux box was a bit too old. (3.2.x versus
3.4.x on the MacOS box.) With 3.5.9 on the Linux box, everything
I haven't tried the MySQL support, but I don't need it.
The timestamps on the other packages were old enough (~2007 IIRC) that
I didn't even try 'em.
Depending on what your application is, you might get more mileage out
of a binding to CouchDB or some other post-relational storage system.
