I have just moved the SOCI project to SourceForge, to gain some
attention of develpers who may have expertise in interfacing with
database engines other than Oracle:
The idea was to enable users with simple needs to write simple code.
Yes, complete and sophisticated DB library is a huge effort, but
straightforward solutions seem to fit the bill in most of the cases.
The licensing of the existing code is based on the original Boost
license (pre-1.0), so there is no problem with adapting and reusing the
source code in any other development effort, be it on SourceForge or
Looking forward to see development of the Boost DB library.
