Commercial Databases

Post by Marcos Pere » Wed, 27 Mar 1996 04:00:00

I am a new Linux user.  I use commercial flavors of UNIX.  Has any one
had success using a commercial database (Informix, Oracle, etc..) with

1. Commercial Databases?

I don't know if this is the place to post this, but...

Does anyone know of any commercial databases available for Linux?  I am
looking for something like Oracle, Sybase, Informix, Ingres, Progess, ...

I already have Just Logic, but there are a few problems with it right now.
(Can't set a field to '', won't take '12' for an integer field, can't
change to date/time/timestamp format to match our class libraries)

I have to have nested select capability, a good C/C++ API, and prefer
something that will auto cast (e.g. If an integer field is set to '12', it
will do the right thing and not complain/error out), as well as a database
that will let me set the date/time/timestamp format.

We currently have a set of libraries that abstract the database into classes
so that applications can access Oracle, Watcom, and sort-of Just Logic
databases without knowing what O.S. or Database Engine is on the other end.
We would like to find a good Linux solution that will support the same
functions we use with Oracle and Watcom.

Thanx in advance for any advice,
