Database and Database Connector Licenses

Since version 3.2.0, BOF-PSS is not anymore distributed with an integrated database connector nor a database engine. Database connections are handled via the JDBC interface and it is now possible for the user to change the connector or database engine he or she wishes to use. Accordingly it is up to the user to acquire and download appropriate commercial or non-commercial database software and compliant database connectors. The current database used in development is MariaDB 10.11

All MySQL OEM licenses distributed with the versions 2.4.0 till 3.1.0 naturally remain valid as stated in the originally granted licenses.
