Hi Andreas & all,

I know, I does not use Zope and DB first day, but, are somewhere list of 
pros/cons for that databases and zope/python DA?

For example, my cons for ODBC at Win32 (NT, 2k, XP) - it is not ideal in 
case of huge simultaneous access, it sometimes does not make write query 
(generally, not only from Zope, but from any app). We have 2 apps - one for 
production on Zope going thru sybase to MSSQL, we run multiple access many 
years without any problems, second on ASP with nice ;) interface for 
managers. When I was run my Zope at win32 over ODBC, here was problems in 
production with missing data at DB, so I was switch to Linux. Now we have 
same problems with ASP part - I need to repair inconsistency coming from 
manager interface up to few times per month. My zope servers on linux runs 
as blackbox - they are serving without problems, no intervetion needed if no 
HW problems. So I think, that you know my reasons to non-odbc DB access. All 
my words to our windoze IT staff in case of any production problems are 
obligatory - "Golden zope!".

But now I want to make some kind of portable, near OS independent (win/lin) 
compact zope solution. So I look for RDB with like "blackbox" functionality, 
with nothing special to make backups of running system (like make backup of 
Data.fs) and nothing to install when move - make backup copy of live system 
and then run it on another machine. Installations are allowed only in case 
of change OS platform.

Many thanks, J. Lukesh

Zope supports all standard databases like Postgres, MySQL, Oracle and M$
SQL server. On Windows it might be necessary to use the commercial mxODBC
product (cheap enough).
