Is there a good GPL relational database for zaurus C860 ?
I would appreciate something that will archive data in a file that will be readable also on WIN XP.

Will this work on a C860?

Yeah I have mysql on my c860 with Cacko QT. It's on my feed:

mysql_3.22.32-3_arm.ipk

I don't think this really the best solution if you want to move the database between Zaurus and Windows though.

Enjoy.

maybe SQLite will be enough? it is available in OZ 3.5.1

Try using PortaBase at http://portabase.sourceforge.net/

PortaBase works also in WinXP Great !!!
I tried to do some databases, when I'll buy my C860 I already have some file to work with !

I was just wondering.... how to make printout of the data in the database ?
C860 does not make printout when it is connected to a network ?
The only way to print is to export to csv ?

Hi,
See my contribution on this french forum :
Portabase and Xml/Html conversion.
This is an example of a Xml transformation in html, directly on the Zaurus !!...

Portabase is great, but it's not relational (from the original post, though, it really doesn't sound like relational is needed).

That said, there are some relational DBs that run on both the Zaurus as well as Windows, aside from MySQL. There's picoSQL - full server and client (Zaurus, Win, Linux), and a PostgreSQL client for Zaurus, server on Windows and Linux, HSQLDB client that connect to various types of databases on the server-side. I also understand that Daffodil DB runs on both the Zaurus and Windows, alothough I have no experience with it.

But really, unless you want to actually do SQL and have the overhead of an RDB, or have special datatype requirements, why not just use Portabase? It stores all your data neatly on several different platforms.

Hi rickh,

actally the best for me is to have a relational databse.
Buy the way I'm interested in see wich kind of database sw I can find.

Relational will help me a lot to simplify the job.

BTW I'm going to try picoSQL.

Tnx for info.
