as I managed some weeks ago the installation and testing of compiere with Oracle sucessfully I now would like to know if there's a reliable date when Comipiere will be available for a free database system.
As I have no knowledge of porting (what ever that means) and other DB issues I need a system as oracle - just install and work with compiere :-)

They represent the closest attempts right now. Fyracle actually already works and you can set it up yourself. Daffodil DB's drop-in DB for Oracle should be available for alpha/beta testing soon.
thanx for your message... but as far as I understand the Fyracle solution only will work with a very old Compiere version and Daffodil is not yet ready...
Did I get the community wrong that there should be a general change in strategy? I hoped to get an DB like oracle that is working with every new release and also be able to use the migration service (as I hope the price to get nicer without Oracle licences)
If you take a look at some of the other threads in this sub-forum, you will see that 2.5.2 is *slated* for database independence. However, the main developers are working on their own set of priorities (which is a choice obvioiusly available to them). In the meantime, DaffodilDB and Fyracle are the only viable solutions.

I have posted this in the relevant threads...but just saw this posting and thought that i'd let you know that we have launched the Compiere-compatible version of Daffodil DB (beta) is available here: http://www.daffodildb.com/daffodil-Compiere.html.
oops, i am sorry, i meant Daffodil DB (alpha), and NOT beta.
InfoSecure Open Systems & Solutions just announced that they completed a project that enables the use of MaxDB with Compiere. MaxDB is OS so now Compiere can be run in a total open source environment. Their html is www.infosecuresystems.com/micompiere.
