Hi,
I've posted a couple of days back regarding a web application project i am planning to develop. Now, i have a question regarding the database for my project. I have Windows 98 running in my system and also have Personal Oracle 8.0 for Windows 95 installed in it. can i use this version of oracle for my project (i would like to mention that iam planning to develop a project using JSP and Servlets). Will this be enough to handle the load on my website??.
I would also like to know if i need Windows NT or Windows Server OS for this..
I have good knowledge of SQL and can handle JDBC..is this enough or should i learn something more?..
Also, I am planning to use JBuilder ..so, should i use Ant along with this?(pardon me if my question is a bit silly, iam totally new to this:-)
Thanks in advance.
-Maya

Impossible to answer without knowing what kind of load you expect for the site. Are you expecting a few visitors hitting the site sporadically, or are you expecting tens of thousands of simultaneous visitors?

Then I would venture to say that just about any database with a decent JDBC driver (which eliminates MS Access) would do just fine.

Try 100 things. 2 will work out, but you will never know in advance which 2. This tiny ad might be one:
