Re: Some questions on GSOC project User Defined Event
Event support is already there in mariadb. Events are the jobs which are
run in certain time interval. I am asking about a new project idea which is
mentioned in mariadb gsoc page. It is unclear to me, what are the use cases
of user defined events( Events and user defined events are not the same,
simply because it is mentioned in the page as a new project idea. :) )
As far as I know user defined events are supposed to save applications
resources used in polling. But I think the application developer could have
created a trigger and udf and use
invoke external application. But there are security issues in this method.
Is it the primary/only reason for this project?
