Re: GSoC 2016 Maxscale Filter


Hi Markus,
Thanks for the kind response. I have forwarded this intro to the Maxscale Google group.
Concerning the MSSQL to MariaDB filter,
Is there an existing API that can be called in our filter to do the conversion or are we coding the regex manually in the filter?

I found an online tool at http://www.sqlines.com/online. It's not accurate though.  Please check it out to see if it's the same thing we are trying to achieve with our filter.

Great to hear you're interested in MaxScale. You might also want to 
introduce yourself on the MaxScale mailing list over at Google Groups.

The filters are a good place to start from, they are quite easy to 
understand while still allowing a lot of room for experimentation. I'm 
looking forward to hearing more from all the people who are interested 
in GSoC 2016 and MaxScale.
