Shall I trust in MySQL database (especially in innodb tables) and in mm.mysql.Driver() for a database application.
For the beginning I'm going to implement a two-tier client/server architecture but I'm thinking to a n-tier architecture too.
If somebody has some experience with such things please let me know.
Thanks,
Dumitru

I do not use it, but I have heard that it is stable, efficient, and scalable. It is free. Did i mention it is free? I think it's biggest selling point is its price! Although there may be better databases out there, I believe that mySQL is king of the freebies.

As above.
I haven't used it in production, but for general messing around I have it permanent on my machine.
Did Jamie mention it was free?

I use it on several web sites and have never had a problem. It is also fast. Did you know its free... Check out Oracle's price.

Thank you all.
Actually the first reason I've chosen it for is the fact that it's free and, I hope it will remain so.

I'm not entirely sure that it's free if you plan on selling solutions utilizing MySql. Also, MySql doesn't support stored procedures at this point, which help enable n-tier apps, and MySql also locks at the table level (I think) which can have ramifications for multiuser apps.
