Thank you, Peter, for your comments about Valentina database.
Sorry it have take so long from us to move Valentina to Ruby world.
And actually we have yet need do few important steps to enable all
Valentina features you also mention.
I am going spend few nearest weeks on the RUBY-CORE list to get help
core-developers of ROR. I hope they will be friendly.

And this is cheaper than MySQL and PostgreSQL and SQLite by how much?
Having no affiliation with this company whatsoever and have to say
this is a bit unfair towards this excellent db. It’s true it’s not
free, but some people like paying for the benefits of a database.
Well, do you all measure by price and money ???
What price of your life? My? Our children?
Or another example.
One Valentina user have switch to Valentina from mySQL his ORM
which is EOF-like, and made for REALbasic. This user have report us that
some complex query mySQL do in 30 minutes, Valentina do in 30 seconds.
Valentina 3.5.2 (upcoming) we have made it even faster to near 1 second.
30 minutes vs 1 second. 1800 times faster.
How much money you need to pay to get mySQL soooo fast? :^)
You also mention SqlLite and Postgre…
DISCLAIMER: Well, I am not going start any wars here, please DO NOT
to my following paragraph. It just expresses MY EXPIRIENCE for the last
years. Just a my private info.
Valentina developers usually are developers who are NOT satisfied with
these mentioned dbs. They come to Valentina and tell us own stories.
them are here:
I have never hear that SqlLite is faster of mySQL for real-world dbs.
have hear only once that Postgre was faster mySQL for some complex many
system, but usually in comparison the say something like: “Postgre
to mySQL is like a tortilla”.
Again no need argue for your favorite tools. All such “wars” at last of
finishes with agree that:
* choose right tools for your tasks. :-) ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
