Creating Notification Callbacks


I am new to MIMER and am in the process of evaluating the software to determine if it meets our requirements.  Currently we are using PostgreSQL 7.4.2 which has LISTEN/NOTIFY functionality so that an application can "LISTEN" to a table waiting for an UPDATE/DELETE/INSERT into the table that is being listened to.  Is there a way to duplicate this same functionality within Mimer?


RE: Creating Notification Callbacks


The LISTEN/NOTIFY functionallity as such does not exist in Mimer SQL today. The easiest way I can think of right away is to have a trigger that updates a "log table" when you do a insert/update/delete and then have the application poll the "log table" on a regular basis. Could this solution help you with your problem?
