I have read very interesting post “Code Quality Comparison of Firebird, MySQL, and PostgreSQL” today about static analysis of three open-source RDBMS. And I wonder, should we use static code analyzers on an ongoing basis, e.g. PVS Studio?
So, the code-quality rankings are as follows:
- 1 place – Firebird and PostgreSQL.
- 2 place – MySQL.
Please remember that any review or comparison, including this one, is subjective. Different approaches may produce different results (though it is mostly true for Firebird and PostgreSQL, but not for MySQL).
