native database vs. oracle native database vs. oracle oradba101 (MIS) (OP) 3 Aug 03 08:22 What are the limitations of using Dataflex's native database vs using a database like Orace? I need to know specifics. TIA RE: native database vs. oracle Peager (Programmer) 5 Aug 03 10:06 First of all, Dataflex's native D/B is NOT client server. It is a fine entry level solution but if you need something more performance/security wise, you should be looking at Oracle, DB2, MS SQL, MySQL, or Pervasive (My favorite.) There are Dataflex drivers for each of these solutions.For the most part, the code is absolutely the same unless you start using embeded SQL.Check out news.dataaccess.com.Paul RE: native database vs. oracle MarcelloYo (Programmer) 1 Jun 05 09:35 Hi, you can use the mertech drivers for DataFlex. Go to www.mertechdata.com and download a trial version. Now, mertech available a new OraFlex8. It is very fast to use with DataFlex and Visual DataFlex.
