Re: Choosing a Database

http://www.oracle.com/   has pointers to Oracles "World Wide Web"
interface kit.  This is essentially a collection of free software that
allows you to easily interface an Oracle database with the Web.



P.S. Standard disclaimers apply. I am speaking on my own behalf and
     NOT as a representative of Oracle. 
Low delay will get you through times of low bandwidth better   415-506-4639
than high bandwidth will get you through times of high delay.
