Database for .NET Windows, PPC, and elsewhere? - 04-21-2004 , 10:41 AM
I'm trying to decide on a persistence layer for .NET that will run not
only behind Windows forms, but also on Pocket PCs, and preferably work
with web applications. Replication is necessary.
I could go the SQL Server way, and it would certainly work, but it has
a huge footprint, needs maintenance, etc. I could use Jet on the
desktop, with ADOCE on the PPC.
I'm also looking at db4o (www.db4o.com), which seems promising. It
runs under Windows and on PPCs, and there is some indication they are
working on replication. It's object oriented, which is nice, but
doesn't support SQL (they use SODA).
The applications I'm working on will have up to a couple of thousand
Any other databases I should be looking at? And, maybe I'm dreaming,
but -- does anything exist that would work under PalmOS as well?

"working up" to a 'desktop' solution.
The other direction, to try to push some bigger-footprint approach
onto a Palm, might add so painful a constraint as to knock an existing
'house of cards' down altogether...

When there's a will, I want to be in it.
