Setting up MySQL to work with DataFlex

Migrating to MySQL Environment

Lesson 5: DataFlex Environment

Three things are needed for using MySQL in the DataFlex Environment:

  1. DataFlex 19.1 Studio (Download DataFlex Studio 19.1 here)
  2. Workspace using Managed Connection (recommended)
  3. DataFlex ODBC Connectivity Kit (or higher) (Download CK here)

Improvements in the DataFlex ODBC Connectivity Kit included in DataFlex 19.1 make migrating to MySQL a seamless process. Optimizations to the Connectivity Kit include:

  • A customizable MySQL INT
  • Better Studio integration

MySQL is an officially supported platform to be used with DataFlex products, and as such, constant improvements will be made to both the drivers and wizards.
