Re: Database Types

I tried Microsoft Access few times, but I haven't really tried others. I want to know some thoughts on this one.

Re: Database Types

PostgreSQL and MySQL are good. I use MySQL primarily because thats what they have where I work. But PostgreSQL is supposed to have more features. They are both easy to install and they are free.

Re: Database Types

Most OpenSource software use MySql (this forum has a MySql database); I've never had a piece of problem with MySql databases. As for Microsoft access, they are more "industry-oriented", and usually come along with Microsoft servers, which are more expensive (and not necessarily better).

No doubt it is Microsoft Access. I am using it for the past 3 years.

Re: Database Types

From my understanding, it also really depends on the use you will make of your databases. It seems that for web development MySQL databases are best because they are free, relatively secure, and there is a huge community built around it (which is great when you need some support). It is also very suitable for PHP development.
However, companies who need relational databases usually prefer Oracle solutions or Microsoft Access ... I've never used them (just tried Microsoft Access a little bit for a class I had a while ago, but that's it).

Re: Database Types

If you use Microsoft Access database then you cannot work with .Net platform properly. That's I would like to suggest you should use MY SQL. It is best database for recent programing platforms. Again the positive point with this database is that you can create procedures and functions directly.

Re: Database Types

Indeed Microsoft Access is proprietary and very incovenient to access via non-microsoft programming languages. I favor MySQL databases as well ... (though sometimes I found them not-so-robusts in many regards).

Re: Database Types

It all depends on the database you have been using. Some can say ms access while other will say oracle or ms sql server. Each of these databases has different features that make one better than other.
Now to the question, it is oracle. This is due to full database security

Re: Database Types

Relational Database are most suitable database ,because in this database data are arranged in a table form and easily arrange. in most cases Relational database are used.
