Hi,

Does anyone know where i can find information about the advantages and disadvantages of using Microsoft Access and Oracle as part of developing a web site and in general use? ie why is one better than the other?

Thanks

Comparing Access to Oracle is like comparing a ten speed to a Harley. I am working with both now. Access is fine to use as a front end tool to connect to Oracle or as a small application database on a desktop, but if you are going to be storing lots of data, and having lots of people accessing it, Oracle is the way to go.

The other side of the coin is that Access is a lot cheaper than Oracle. I guess it all depends on the amount of expected use and what you / your company can afford.

Sorry, I don't have any technical links for you to read, but maybe someone else will.
