WL#4650: Allow building the embedded libmysqld as a shared library
Affects: Server-9.x — Status: Assigned — Priority: Medium
Currently, the Embedded MySQL server (libmysqld) is only built as a static library (libmysqld.a). If possible, it would be useful to also provide a shared library version (libmysqld.so) that applications could link against dynamically. That would make it easier to update the embedded server in case of bugs without having to rebuild the entire application. (See BUG#39288 for more details)
