What is the reason for Oracle to detain Mysql Features like BDB,
INNODB...? Is there any Hidden Market strategies for that.... 


Thanks & Regards ,

I doubt if they can -- from the InnoDB website:
The GPLv2 License
The GNU General Public License version 2, under which both MySQL and
InnoDB are published, does not allow, without permission from MySQL AB
and Innobase Oy, linking of InnoDB and MySQL, or the client libraries of
MySQL, to a product which you distribute but which does not itself
satisfy the GNU GPLv2 license.



So if Innobase doesn't grant MySQL permission, they have no leg to stand
on.



Either way, I think Falcon is the future if you want to stay with MySQL
only,

other options are available if you want to go 3rd party...
