[REBOL] Re: dbms3.r

Hi Petr, Just to add another view... << Once you have some even small cross table relationships, and you have not transaction support and roll-backs, you are dead. >> I think that depends on your needs, how you architect a system, and how you use the tools available. I built a medium size system that dealt with complex objects and we used a small ISAM database which allowed us to persist them more easily than using an RDBMS. We had to account for the relationships and protection mechanisms to fit our needs, but it was a much better solution for us, given that we were dealing with a small number of large objects. Many relationships were implicit due to the object hierarchy. We accomplished our goals with semaphores and had very few incidents even though we didn't have explicit transaction support built in to our system. --Gregg
