Pinal the updates are great. In your great wisdom on matters of IT, do you think that there is a better alternative to SQL? If so please blog about it.
Thanks for the updates, jst downloaded the Microsoft SQL Server Compact 3.5 Service Pack 2 for Windows Desktop, it will come in handy for my mobile applications
Pinal Dave, let ask. I built an .net 3.5 application last year. I used SQL and was told it was much more robust than MYSQL (and PHP). It was a financial app and was told that due to data migration we should us SQL to better control the data integrity.
What do you think?
I too have heard the SQL is better with data integrity…although, I’m not entirely sure why this is…would like to find out why.
Great Post. I do find SQL to be more stable and more flexible than .net 3.5 applications, which each update .net is a feasible alternative to SQL though
Pinal the updates are great. In your great wisdom on makes a difference of IT, are performing you think right now there is a more attractive alternative to SQL? If so you can blog about they.
