db-Express or Interbase

db-Express or Interbase

Hi everyone. I am relatively new to Delphi programming. I need to create a database which will have approx 10 users and which will be able to store and play video files. I was thinking of using either db-Express and MySQL or Delphi and Interbase. I'm using Delphi 6 Enterprise. First of all are both of these options viable and secondly which option would you recommend. Excuse me if I'm a bit vague but I'm quite new to this! Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

RE: db-Express or Interbase


It kinda depends.

(btw, you can also use dbExpress with InterBase)

What do you need - for example, do you need Stored Procedures and Triggers - if so, MySQL is out...

Hi thanks for the reply. As I'm a bit of a newbie, I'm not really sure what you mean by stored procedures and triggers! Could you explain? Much appreciated.

RE: db-Express or Interbase

OK, I've just found the info at the MySQL website. I'll get back to you with my answer. Thanks anyway.
