    Question Unanswered: Pervasive SQL or MS SQL Server


    I have been a user of MS SQL Server for a long time now. But now our new client has requested us to use Pervasive SQL for there Web Based Application. But I wanted to strong reasons as to why to use Pervasive or actually Why not. Therefore i request you guys out there to assist me in deciding which DB to use?

    From the surfing I have done I learnt that initially the SQL Support by Pervaisve SQL was very weak as it was very strong in the Transactional model.

    How strong is Pervasive SQL as a Relational DBMS?

    What are the Pros and Cons of Pervasive SQL compared to MS SQL Server?

    Your assistance in this will be greatly appreciated.

    PSQL runs on Windows, NetWare, and Linux.
    PSQL costs less (TCO) than MS SQL. Here are some links:
    I know that PSQL is used by a number of companies for their web data access.
