    Question Do you use more than one database ?

    Hello everybody,

    the question is : "Do you use more than one database in your projects
    or freetime ?"

    We use many databases in our projects (depends what the customer would like to have ...)

    Please vote for the databases you are using ...

    Thanks

    Oracle during working hours and MySQL for everything else.

    Ah, the joys of getting frustrated because what worked one moment doesn't work the next... and then you remember you jumped databases:

    Oracle : The core system
    MySql: Message Boards and Private use
    PostgreSQL: Caching System
    Sql Server: Crystal Report, Analysis, .Net apps
    MSAccess: The quick hacks in VB - i.e. batch insert into lots of other databases from Excel

    This runs a bit like our programming languages:
    TCL: The core system
    VB: Batch jobs
    ASP: Dynamic content and streaming apps
    ASP .Net: Internal apps
    Java: Replacing the legacy TCL

    It's hell... I would heartily recommend any organisation to reduce the tools to a manageable lot rather than go for the 'best tool for the job' vs cost effectiveness type management... you just end up with proliferating environments at a higher maintenance cost.

    Uh,

    DBASE III time is gone, I guess....


    so mostly Informix, Unix SAS, Oracle and once a while Access and MS SQL .... mostly data mining using pure SQL, ADO and SAS. For OLAP microstrategy and BusinessObjects.

    Smile more than one database

    I have used a combination of SQL Server and Access for backend tables - in one database. I'm now developing a couple of systems in Access and .asp: These will be converted into mySQL and .php because of the stability they offer, but the Access .asp combination s good for the development/prototying phase.
