Hello out there,
i have to decide, how to develope a database.
as you will know, there are much possibilities, but i also have to
follow some general conditions.
I think as a DBMS i will decide between MySQL or PostGreSQL. But my
problems consists of the tools and possibilities with which the user
must communicate with the database.
I think there are two things possible. Either i program a GUI with
Java and the access to the database will run over a driver or
something like that, or i take the way through a browser and scripting
languages like php4 or perl.
But i have to mind that there shoul be manuals or books, to which i
can refer, because i would have to learn these tools while
programming. Besides the software should be out of charge. If anybody
knew, which way would be "the best" i would be very pleased to hear
Where can i find all these things that are needed?!
With best regards,
Stefan from Leipzig, Germany.
