[REBOL] Re: mySQL - what table type to use?

Hi Rod, On Wednesday, August 6, 2003, 8:09:32 PM, you wrote: RG> are using a db without transaction support you need to design it RG> differently to get reasonable reliability. Yes, of course, but it depends on what your DB is modeling. Roll-back is important if aborting between queries would leave the DB in an inconsistent state. Transactions are important if your queries require proper serialization. You usually need these features (by "need" I mean "can't live without") only for rather complex databases. In simpler cases (as DBs used for web sites usually are) you can easily (as you say) just write your software differently.
