Dear Sonu,

embedded MySql is a library linked to from an application you write either statically or dynamically as a .dll, or under Linux as a .so, and then your application acts as a server to its self. So it is called embedded. The server is embedded inside your application.

So instead of making tcp requests to it on a port number, your application makes function calls to the linked library.

The MySql tables are created in a directory structure that you nominate in your application.

Only one application can do this directly at a time, but that application can "serve" other applications that are able to "talk" to it through com, dcom, tcp or other means that you are able to programme yourself into the applications.

I hope that makes things a bit more clearer to you.

However I also would like to know if there are any references to Php being able to use embedded MySql as I am looking at whether it could be used in the Opensource Titanium framework ( now that they include Php?
