WL#437: MySQL should support Zeroconf/Bonjour
Affects: Server-5.0 — Status: Un-Assigned — Priority: Medium
Use an existing library (e.g. mdnsd, avahi) to start an additional thread upon startup that handles messaging. This feature should: -be a compile time option or plugin -allow the user to enable and disable it via a my.cnf Bonjour aka Rendezvous enables automatic discovery of computers, devices, and services on IP networks. Also known as Zero Configuration networking or Zeroconf, Bonjour uses industry standard IP protocols to allow devices to automatically find each other without the need to enter IP addresses or configure DNS servers. Bonjour is an open protocol, which Apple has submitted to the IETF as part of the ongoing standards-creation process. We should try to find out, if MySQL could be able to make use of this technology so a MySQL server could automatically announce itself in a network. This concept is not Mac OS X only, many platforms support it.
