    Linux Database

    Hi all

    I am undergoing the feasibility study of a project to be made under linux environment. The tools under consideration are Glade or QTDesigner for the interface and KDevelop for the coding in C++ language. Well i want to ask which would be the best database tool for the connectivity with and if anyone can give some links to the tutorials it would be highly appreciated.

    Well you could go for PostgreSQL (IMHO the best network database system)..

    Or if you want an embeded database, sleepycat's berkeleydb.

    There is a "getting started" guide for berkeleydb and c++ here: http://www.sleepycat.com/docs/gsg/CX...re-Cxx-GSG.pdf

    I would agree with JinX. PostgreSQL all the way, but for some reason all the apps I want to run are coded for MySQL. I wonder if Its just as simple as adding pg to all the sql calls lol
    meh. -ech0.

    I reccommend firebird:

    I use it to support a 10GB head office database and 100 stores.

    Given your requirements are more or less unknown... why wouldn't you select something nice a full featured RDBMS, with tons of resources availible as well as fast... like oh... I don't know... Oracle?!

    cheers,
