Databases Oracle tried to acquire open-source database maker MySQL, an indication of the profound changes the software giant is willing to make as it adapts to the increasingly significant collaborative programming philosophy. MySQL Chief Executive Marten Mickos confirmed the acquisition attempt in an interview at the Open Source Business Conference here but wouldn't provide details such as when the approach was made or how much money Oracle offered.

Sorry to dissapoint you but MySQL as of version 5 includes everything from procedures, functions, to transactions to triggers and sequences...etc

The gap between Oracle and MySQL is becoming very very small.
