I’m often looking for a good alternative to MS SQL Server. I’ve used my different database system, but never MySQL and PostgreSQL. Recently, I started looking for some more up to date information, especially with the recent turmoil surrounding MySQL (first being bought by SUN, then the turnover, then SUN being possibly bought by IBM), who knows what the future holds for MySQL.
Anyways, so I found two good articles worth reading. Enjoy!
The field is definitely getting more crowded, I’d be interested in hearing more about Apache Derby and others.
