Re: Sybase ASE

I've used it on a couple of development boxes and it ran very well for me. I can't comment on the stability of the product within a production environment, but I was very pleased with the multi-level transaction system, and the speed at which it queried very convoluted SQL statements (subselects, left joins, etc.). It was rock-solid on the dev machines I was running it on.

If only they'd open up the source completely, I'd move all of my web app development immediately to it from PostgreSQL/MySQL.

My two cents-

Has anyone here experience with Sybase ASE on Linux ?

I'm wondering, if it is a good choice for production enviroment... It has
a little strange license:

"You are allowed to install and use the Software for free as long as you
operate the Software at all times only with the Open Source - Linux and
various BSD - operating systems running natively on your hardware
system. "

What does it mean _operate_the_Software_ ? ;)
What about multi-tier applications, when connections to Sybase are made by
linux-based-middle-tier only ? Is it allowed ?


PS - I know I should post this question directly to Sybase, but I'd like
to know about your experiences with it...
