Everybody has given Angus really great advice in this previous thread
and I have learned a lot too. I hope no one mines the fork but I am in
the exact same situation as Angus. If anyone could spare a bit of time
regarding application infrastructure I would really appreciate it.
I know there are lots of databases out there and PostgreSQL is held in
high regard but the overwhelming majority of examples seem to use MySQL.
Considering that Oracle has bought Sun, do you think it is still wise to
use it for new applications? Oracle does not have much "street cred" in
open source circles, maybe they'll cause trouble later and MySQL was
already forking was it not? I'd like to use the same DB for a few years.
I am attracted to building an application from scratch but I will never
get an object relational mapper to work without a framework. If I go the
scratch route, I'd better get my database done right(as was advised in
the previous thread!)and getting that right probably starts with
choosing the right DB.
