Has Jorge lost interest in db independance?
I have not heard much chatter on this subject.
No but rather talking about it ... I work on it.
The only reason I ask.... I have been spending time understanding JBoss & JBoss CMP with the understanding that Compiere will be using this technology more in the future.
I think it would be really hard to reach soon a DBMS independance. THe main probleme seems to be the powerful lake of CMP entity Bean (just an example : it doesn't manage date).
I don't think you can do a software just using CMP entity Bean for manage persistant nowadays (even with the EJB 2.1 specification). You've to wait that the language called EJB-QL (independant from DBMS) become more complete.
Else I encourage developpers to use SAPDB (www.sapdb.org) as DBMS because :
- it's under GPL licence and free,
- runs as well on Windows as Unix, Linux.... (that PostgreSQL doesn't)
- it seems to be powerful (more than PostgreSQL but not less than the last release of Oracle) and complete
- easy to install and to use.
Thus with that DBMS, Compiere could work with a free and Open source DBMS on any OS.
PS : I do not work at SAP, I'm just a french student... Sorry for my mistakes.
