[REBOL] Re: Dialecting......

From: idsrini::gmail::com at: 7-Feb-2009 18:47

Hi Gregg, On a completely different track....... Typically for Business Applications we end up using an RDBMS. I assume that there is going to be support for some RDBMS (SqLite, etc.). Rebol's Block mechanism is very powerful. The issue with RDBMS is that they are not very supportive naturally to Hierarchical Information. Object Databases (db4o specifically) stores data directly in object form, and you need to query the data - sort of like LINQ in DOTNET. Given the power of Rebol, I was wondering whether the guys are thinking of a datastore that would mimic the natural expressiveness of Rebol and provide a database without the issues faced by traditional RDBMSes or OODBMSes. Of course response time, etc would be a factor, but for small to medium size datastores this should not be a problem... Just some thoughts that I wanted to share.....
