Mumbai has always been free-to-use and I don’t want to change this ever. However, I’ve spent considerable amounts for development tools over the last years. To be able to implement some new features, I will need to invest a bit again, so I am asking now for donations to support the further development of Mumbai.
Number one on my shopping list is a source code version of the Direct Oracle Access components. They were kind enough to offer me a 25% discount, so I need around 240 Euros (around 280 USD) for this one!🙂 Besides other things, this will let me add support for connecting to ASM instances with Mumbai.
If more money comes in, I will spent it for a Developer Express VCL subscription which is around
US$600 (510 Euros) US$540 (460 Euros) (Update 2015-01-14: The cool guys from DevExpress offered a 10% discount. Thanks!).
This component suite is the basis for lots of GUI elements in Mumbai, including data grids and most of the diagrams and an update to their current version will benefit Mumbai in the long term.
With both libraries available in their current version, I also hope to implement “server mode“, which would make working with large query result sets (think V$SQL, etc.) much slicker.
If you would like to donate something for the further development of Mumbai, please use the PayPal links below. I would greatly appreciate your support! Thank you!🙂
