Question about MYSQLI and your products in relation to the future

Question about MYSQLI and your products in relation to the future


I am planning on making the transition to MYSQLI and intend on using your product MYSQLI server behaviors to do it as I have been a webassist customer as far back as I can remember

Before I purchase mysqli server behaviors, I need to understand one thing

My understanding is the PHP Update will eventually affect all scripts and websites that use mysql

If I use your MYSQLI product, I will use it for all the various jobs of connecting to the db, recordsets, inserting, updating ect.. of course

However, my question is

what happens with the code generated by your other extenshions?

Specifically your eCart, file upload, email ect... is the code these products produce not affected by the mysql update or is this an issue that will need to be addressed in future versions of your products?

I want to know as if the code of these products affected... then I dont see the point in using mysqli server behaviours as it would still affect other areas of my site.?

Or is my understanding wrong? Please clarify this point so I can proceed to my order.

Thank you!

The MySQLi server behaviors extension is a starting point for upgrading the other extensions to use MySQLi.

Think of it this way, the current extensions where built on the groundwork of the standard Dreamweaver server behaviors. We needed to recreate that groundwork using MySQLi before we could start upgrading the extensions.

At this time, eCart 6 has been upgraded for MySQli, and are working on Data Bridge, we are targeting the First Quarter of 2015 for the Data Bridge upgrade, and then will be working on Design Extender.

Ok, it makes more sense for me to wait for you other extensions to be updated as I would be wasting my time only updating parts of my systems.

In this case would your mysqli server behaviors in moved into and included in data bridge?

Also Will this be a free update or will there be an upgrade fee? If paid, any idea how much that will be?

Thank you! :)

I can't say what the final feature set will include or how much it will cost as the feature set has not been finalized yet.
