Comment Re:InnoDB (Score 1) 215

1. Does Oracle need InnoDB? Would Oracle gain features or capabilities they don't already have by incorporating it into their database?

Oracle has all the database technology they could want. I don't think they need any share of a market worth approximately $0. I can only think of a single reason for Oracle to buy InnoDB: MySQL has been encroaching, and they need to slow it down.

Be careful when a loop exits to the same place from side and bottom.
