SAL Home DBASE Relational DBMS


MDBMS is a SQL database server. Some main features of MDBMS:

  • Very easy installation, 1 binary, no configuration.
  • Rich SQL support, like: subselects (WHERE IN, WHERE EXISTS), referential integrity (ON DELETE CASCADE, SET NULL, RESTRICT), GROUP BY, full expressions in SELECT and WHERE parts (SELECT (salary/12)*months FROM ...), primary keys and foreign keys consisting of multiple attributes and more.>
  • Support for tables without a primary key.
  • Full control over a telnet TCP connection. There's a user TCP port for normal use and a client TCP port, for fast, easy to parse access by clients.
  • Smooth multitasking: every port can run their own queries simultaneously.
  • Full user based security system with GRANT/REVOKE on SELECT, INSERT, DELETE, UPDATE, DROP and WITH GRANT OPTION.
  • A dynamic CGI-bin is included for easy web integration.
  • A Java interface is being worked on, as well as ODBC.
