 ANN: Npgsql - .Net Data Provider for PostgreSQL

I am forwarding this email from the DOTNET and MONO-LIST mail lists to
the PostgreSQL GENERAL list in the hopes people may find this email
helpful.

There is currently two .NET Data Providers for PostgreSQL available.
They are both in heavily development.

Anybody care to comment.  If you want to reply, please reply to my email
address because I do not receive email from the PostgreSQL mail lists
for some reason.  

Can someone see why am I not subscribed and do not receive any mail?

You are correct.

Francisco is working on a provider that is written entirely in C# and
adheres to the PostgreSQL protocol to accomplish its magic.

Mono is using libpq.so on linux/unix (pq.dll on Windows) to accomplish
this.  This was done so we could create the System.Data functionality in
Mono much quicker.  The PostgreSQL developers did a great job making it
very easy to use their client C API in other languages.

However, we could learn from each others projects though.

I wonder if the Java JDBC Provider for PostgreSQL could help us too?

Did you guys write the provider from the ground up?  Or are you using
libpq.so (or in windows, pq.dll)?

Sounds like the original poster actually started from the ground up in
all managed code.

It is in a very early stage. For now, just the connect/disconnect
functionality is working. It parses and validate the connection string
and makes the connection.

It is released under the LGPL license and can be found at:
< http://www.***.com/ ;

This is my first OpenSource project and any help, suggestion,
recommendation is welcome.

Thanks!
