Thoughts on node.js and libdrizzle

Today I was chatting with a technical friend, and she mentioned that she has a "todo" of writing a decent node.js driver for MySQL. A bit more chatting back and forth, and http://nodejsdb.org/db-drizzle/ was discovered. It was written to use libdrizzle and drizzled, but since libdrizzle can talk to MySQL, it should work for her needs as well.

I would love to see some work done on how well libmysql+mysqld, libdrizzle+mysqld, and libdrizzle+drizzled handle highly concurrent asynchronous event-oriented workloads such as those generated by all these new node.js applications.

I suspect that all sorts of surprising bugs will be discovered.

Please help us discover those bugs.

  1. unfortunately, node.js driver does not use libdrizzle in async way, hehe
