Hey guys,

I have a question here. How could you possibly get feeds out of one database and input to other database. Why would you do that typically, I mean do anybody do this kind of things anywhere. Confusing right. I know. Okay let me keep it this way. If you have a front end application which feeds data to a database, which inturn feeds another database. So my question is why cant you feed two databases at the same time from the front end application. What is the advantage of doing it?

Thanks
Scott.

Scott,
You can write to 2 databases from the front end. If you want a transaction, look into XA (distributed transactions.) If not, just write to the databases.

Scott,

Are you talking about some sort of database replication service? If so it' best left to the native database tools. They will in all likelyhood be much faster and probably less bugs as well.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
