    This probably ought to be a FAQ. But there is currently no database library
in boost. There have been some contenders in the past.
I had hopes for SOCI for instance (see e.g.
Are there any candidates on the horizon? If not, what unrelated projects would
people here recommend (or recommend against).

Just for context, I am looking for a "sword against anybody who got into belief
that (db) programming in the language beginning with 'J' is easier. ;) "
to quote the author of SOCI in the post I mentioned. However, I'm beginning to
suspect maybe it is easier in Java, not through any
fault in C++ itself but in the success of the Java community versus the lack of
*recognised* success in the C++ community.
