Re: Difference between using Merge vs. symbolic-links approach?

Merge-master Kim, I thank you for your help. I just found out some bad news: table X must have a FULLTEXT key index defined on it. This evening I did some reading about the FULLTEXT feature and my understanding is that it prohibits both the MERGE and the VIEW options you mentioned.

More precisely, it appears...
(i) you cannot create a MERGE table on a table with a FULLTEXT index, and
(ii) you can define a VIEW on a table with a FULLTEXT index, but the resulting VIEW will not make use of that index and hence will not be full-text searchable.

So, it seems as if I am out of luck. Is is likely that solution (i) or (ii) might be feasible in an impending MySQL update?
