Survey of Database Requirements ...

Postby Gaev » Thu Oct 27, 2005 1:20 pm

Dave:

This point about enhancements in the Database arena seems to keep rearing its head time and again. In the summer, in response to one such enquiry/request, I started this post ...

http://www.neosoftware.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=13258

... but the community response was meagre ... 2 responses to be exact ... yet we keep geting non-specific requests for updates/upgrades etc. ... perhaps, people want database support for Access and SQL type files ... and for reasons discussed on this forum before, want a NeoSoft supplied solution.

So, I thought I would follow up with a poll that covers almost all cases ... see if we can get at least 3 responses this time :-)

There´s another option that i can think

-> Pick all work of third part developers and put in a trash.

Hi,
I prefer to invest on SQL database plugin with ability to create fields in runtime with nested fields. I don't mind to pay $100

Thanks,

What are SQL files?

There is no standard SQL file. Local or server-side?

What does SQL database plugin mean?

Oracle
MS SQL Server
MySQL
SQLite
ODBC
Other SQL database

Hi...

Gaev:

I belive any one would pay up to 100$ for a plugin made by Neosoftware...
And that is for some reason, NB software has prove over toose years that honour the trust of the people who use they software with reable and quality products... I think this is the reason every body wants NB to start a new plugin for database. (including me)

I hope NB will continue to suprise us like did before...

Alberto
I don't think anyone underrate the work of third party developers, just we want all the above some developers can't offer...

Thanks

Maybe a ODBC plug-in to allow any ODBC database.

Also, I think that a full robust DB should offer
- SQL based
- Full Multi User
- Full Reporting Facilities
- Reliable Support

Gaev,

My compliments on your method of gathering information. We are lazy people and this was just too easy for us to not contribute.

There are almost 300 registered people on this forum, and probably an equal number or more who are not registered. It would be nice to get at least 50 responses.

Alberto, I am on your side. I understand you have invested alot in this. You can see by the responses here that your plan to offer a data module for NeoBook would be quite a profit maker. People want such items.

Unfortunately, this has been on your agenda for nearly a year. Some business people must act NOT on intentions but on substance.

I bet if you finish your plugins and put them on the market, people will buy them. Access is the most common one. SQL next (people may misunderstand the concept of using SQL files, as there is no standard SQL file, it is the data structure of an SQL server which you must have running).

Of course, you could pre-empt all these by doing just an ODBC module. Frankly, someone who offers that will probably get most of the Neobook business, except for smaller dbs. Except then there would need to be a way to install all the ODBC files on a neobook app's computer. This can be a mess.

So hurry up and finish! You may get a bunch of people buying your modules!

I agree with David and Steven. I think O talk not for myself only, but for the plugins developers who have spent time on that, even freeware ones. There´s options. I FULLY UNDERSTAND the concerns about support. About tmDatabase, it still lacks de MDB and the user guide, that i´m working on both. MDB is ready, but i have a bug that not exists in any other flavour in the navigator part. I have a power failure here everyday, so my postings on this forum are rare today.

I actually would vote for ODBC capabilities, even if it were read only. This would be more versatile, as noted in an earlier post. I have quite a few integration projects which would be alot easier if it were possible to pull the data from the ODBC source.

Hi all,

On Argentina, President Peron said:

"The unique True, is the Reality..."

Reality says there are 3 options:

* Use existing services

* Develop your own services as you need

* Purchase a new develop as you need to a third party

I think there are very good stuff to work.

There are services to handle xBase, Access, MySQL and SQLite databases.

I dont imagine any Database situation that actual plugins cant resolve.

I think Neosoft developer team need their time to do another services to do a better NeoBook...

Mi devaluated cent,

David de Argentina
