RT with SAP DB

Hello.

I am currently using RT 2-0-15 with postgresql but we have all others
applications running with SAP DB.

Since we plan to test RT 3.0, I just want to know if there are some
plans to make RT running with SAP DB ?
Is it possible to make it running with SAP DB now even it’s not
supported. Has anyone already tried ?

If not, do you think it’s a lot of work ?
Note: It’s possible to access a SAP DB database from perl with
DBD::ODBC.

Best regards,
Laurent

The last time I looked, they didn’t have a release for Mac OS X, which
hampered my own development efforts. There are two parts to an initial
port:

1) Translate RT's database schema to SAP DB (Start from the
MySQL schema)

2) Create a DBIx::SearchBuilder::Handle class for SAP DB

After this, run rt’s test suite with “make regression” and see how you
do. From there, we may need to tweak and fine-tune things.

  1. Create a DBIx::SearchBuilder::Handle class for SAP DB

If SAB supports ODBC, might it make more sense to start working on
DBIx::SearchBuilder::Handle::ODBC?
