: i'm not recommending Visual Studio Professional 2005 says Dr. M. Why not then? Database Design and Implementation consitute 70% of Business Solutions now-a-days, right? Than actual programming. Thus OODMS will be very interesting to use and with what tools then do you suggest?
The full Visual Studio Professional 2005 is an expensive package for a lot of people and a bit of a mindfield for a lot of people to use.
Furthermore there are probably other cheaper or FREE opensource packages that can create an OODBMS package.
Microsoft don't need recommendations for their packages either, do they? Bill Gates and Co. are rich enough. I'm trying to encourage use of other packages too.
I'm not slagging the VS Pro 2005 package or Microsoft off other than i hate the MONOPOLY they have in the software industry and that EVERY version of WINDOWS has loads of security holes in it, even the latest WINDOWS VISTA!! A knowledgeable hacker can quite easily compromise an internet connected PC, need i say more?
Unfortunately for most of the world we have to "put up with" this MONOPOLY and the might of Microsoft. I'm all for encouraging the use of alternative systems like LINUX etcetera.
Without trying to sound like i am being "very anti-Microsoft", which i'm not, i just like to keep an open mind to alternatives.
Finally a friend had a database driven web-site installed, registered and up-and running with an open-source CMS in under 40 minutes with a LINUX system.
It would be hard to do this as quick on any WINDOWS based system.
P.S. "Than actual programming"
Well to answer that part i'd somewhat disagree ( 70% is a fair estimate though ) as some commercial database driven web-sites have some programming behind them with ASP.Net etcetera. Another Microsoft idea. :-|
I'm not suggesting any other tools as i'm far too busy at the moment with my university studies and work, especially at this time of year.
P.P.S. You could create an OODBMS with the FREE version of VB.Net or any of the EXPRESS programming language packages provided you know enough about file handling, CLASSES etcetera, like i do.
I haven't the time to write a custom SQL-database-ObjectOrientated package at the moment though....but it's an idea!!
Get them here.>>
There you go, i'm not completely anti-Microsoft!!
