I have an database front end application which is still on RealBasic. It is cross platform with both OSX and Windows clients and the Frontbase database runs on an OSX machine. It has been running for ages (the first front end was written in RB2.1).
With OSX evolving there will soon be the need to go 64 bit - also because security requirements are increasing. With the absence of a plugin for Frontbase for Xojo, is there anyone who has done this before or has any suggestions? I see 3 options:
- See if the ODBC driver for Frontbase is an effective option
- Migrate to SQL or PostgreSQL - but I have no experience with that
- Find out that a Frontbase plugin actually exists for Xojo
Any suggestions on this? I would prefer to stay on Frontbase because it has been a very good experience.
