    Hi, I was wondering if someone was using the application with thousands of stocks and transactions in a portfolio, and what was then the performance of the xml I/O? If slow, it may be more practical to port that code into a SQL DB as well. Thanks.

      Some testing would have to be done to see how performance scales with the size of the portfolio data. The porfolios for retail investors would have a small number of stocks and transactions; the porfolio for an index would  be substantially larger. A database is probably the right place for the data in the latter case. But even if there aren't measurable performance benefits, it's not a bad idea to have everything in a database, if it's available.  It would allow the user to have the same user experience on different computers.  Tack it on to the other features and it will be implemented RSN.

      Mark.

      I'm actually coding it now. Rewriting portfolioWriter/Reader. It won't compile w/ MOV as I have a different architecture and so many other things but it may lower your workload to start from there.
