> Subject: [PHP-DB] Oracle vs MS SQL vs MySQL
> I have used Oracle, MSSQL, MySQL, ADABAS and MS Access.
> For small projects my preference is MySQL with PHP on *nix and MS Access
> with ASP on Win32.
> For more complex projects requiring complicated calculations or projects
> with a lot of data Oracle is the best choice, because it is the most
> powerfull and flexible. However if it is too expensive choose MSSQL or
> ADABAS depending on which plattform you use.
> I enjoy working with Oracle the most, because you can do really cool
> things. Load Java objects as stored procedures, have stored procedures
> return cursors etc and the best of all you can basically come up with
> any kind of usefull SQL statement and it will work. That is not the case
> with the others.
> So in case licensing is not an issue and you have Oracle DBAs, thus you
> do not have to worry about administration, which is not exactly trivial,
> choose Oracle.
> >Has anyone tried out all three of these DBMS packages and evaluated them?
> >I was wondering what everyone is having the best luck with when writing
> >PHP scripts.
> >I'm using Oracle8i and if you don't mind, it's a pain in the tail. :-P
> >While I'm asking, let's not limit it to just those three, if anyone is
