I was wondering if Simol works with MDB ?

Thank you.

I'm not familiar with MDB. Could you be more specific about what type of integration you mean?

Thank you for your reply. 

M/DB is a Free Open Source "plug-compatible" alternative to Amazon Simple DB. Outwardly, M/DB behaves identically to SimpleDB, being accessed through the same REST APIs and returning identical responses. The only difference in use is that REST requests are directed at a different domain name or IP address. Note that M/DB isn't a mock service: it's a true database.

I thought that in my case, it would be attractive to use since it is free (Unlike Amazon charging per user).

If you'd like to know more about them, they are at:

Simol communicates with SimpleDB through the AmazonSimpleDB interface (from the AWS SDK). You could provide your own implementation of this interface to communicate with M/DB and pass it to the SimolClient constructor at runtime. If the two databases are functionally identical this should let you use Simol with M/DB.

I'd love to hear how it works out if you try that route!

Thank you for your reply. I may try it, and if I do I will sure let you know.

Best regards.
