License: do I need one ?

Recommended Posts


I have an app that needs a DBMS in order to work. It can be any ANSI SQL compliant DBMS.

The app is working fine with MySQL, and this is my preferred database. I distribute my app without a database, and my customer is supposed to install any supported DBMS and create an ODBC connection.


Does anyone know if my customer needs to buy a license if he/she chooses MySQL ?


I asked this question to the comercial department of MySQL AB, but they didn\'t answer.
