so i am beginning to code an application, and was wondering if anyone can recommend a database to use?
One thing i would like to do is store files in the database, be via BLOB or something that works well. I don’t see the need to do large files but would be nice to have that option without slowing down the database. I have used sql before with files which works fine if i have the files in a seperate table and split up by 65kb. Also encryption of some sort would be a need. Now my plan was to have my own server app running and working of a database file, just like the sqlite database files in xojo, is it possible to do that with other types of databases? so i don’t have to actually get the database server installed, i just have the database file and create my own server, so i can add features i want. I assume i need a driver or something. Some of these databases listed here sound really good, have some real nice features and seem to work with with large blob: http://www.realsoftwareblog.com/2012/07/databases-that-work-with-real-studio.html
but as far as i can tell they all need to be installed and running on their own software, i can just have a database file and then a driver/class to read and write to it.
anywayz, if anyone has any info or recommendations i would very much appreciate it.
