Add support for the IBM Informix database.
I developed this extension:
I don't think it should be bundled with the framework. We can link to your extension from documentation if you want.
It can be mentioned somewhere in this section: http://www.yiiframework.com/doc/guide/1.1/en/database.dao#establishing-database-connection
UPD: @edgardmessias's DB2 extension can be mentioned too: https://github.com/edgardmessias/yiidb2
Firebird extension can be mentioned too: https://github.com/robregonm/YiiFirebird
I don't know what would be the difference. I am a user not the driver's developer. What would it be like?
'class' => 'ext.cubrid.CubridDbConnection'
One downside is that CUBRID, which is truly awesome (and I'm the kind of person who choses words carefully), does not enjoy the propaganda megaphone of being in a Yii Framework update announcement. Thousands of Yii users could miss an opportunity to learn about a superb DBMS that is both open source and has a future.
Otoh, Latest News is good too.
After discussing with @qiangxue decided to include it into core framework. So now it's only about ensuring that code is OK.
@edgardmessias can you prepare a pull request?
Yes, I will create a fork of Yii
I'll make the test code to phpunit.
If you're eager to do it for DB2 and Firebird and deal with supporting these, it's the same decision.
Okay, thank you.
I'll start with Informix and DB2
Firebird I'll have to see with @robregonm
I'm preparing a pull-request for Firebird support
