Drupal 6.0 is revamped with Schema API, so what's next for Drupal 7.x?
PDO for sure! With this powerful data-access abstraction layer, workload
will much reduced for DB abstraction layer designers and developers, and
finally benefit our contribute developers and end users.
By the way, together with the decision of Drupal 7.x + PDO, there is
also some voice about moving PostgreSQL (and so other potential
databases support, e.g. Oracle, DB2, MSSQL, etc) support away from core,
but contribute; on the other hand, add official SQLite support into
Drupal core, together with MySQL.
Is this really a good idea? Or even if it is possible? As an existing
Drupal + PostgreSQL users, what will this affect your daily work? As a
potential customer of Drupal + Oracle/DB2/MSSQL/etc, is this a good new
for you, or just an evil? I would like to provide some brief idea for
you within this article.
