Visual FoxPro has long been the perfect front end for client-server
applications. Featuring a robust programming language, a full-featured
IDE, and a powerful object model, rich client development has always
been a joy. Inside, a native local data engine, integrated hooks into
binding with remote data, and Rushmore technology make VFP your secret
weapon when connecting to SQL back-ends.
MySQL is the world's most popular open source SQL database, running on
Windows, Linux, and Macintosh platforms. Version 5 incorporates
"big-iron" features like stored procedures and transactions.
These features, together with the royalty free runtime model of VFP and
the open source licensing of MySQL make client-server applications built
with these tools the most powerful and economical combination on the planet.
And this book is the only one that shows you specifically how to
install, configure, and connect MySQL and VFP, as well as build a
variety of client-server user interfaces with VFP. Together with dozens
of discussions of real world problems and potential solutions, you won't
find a better guide to MySQL and VFP client-server development.
Just about all my VFP development over the past seven years has been with
a SQL backend, and over the past four, that backend has usually been MySQL.
This is the book I wish I had when I started with MySQL!
