Subject: [libreoffice-users] Re: Serious application development with LibreOffice and LibreOffice
I successfully warped up the application development project I described. Final end-of-project
stats were as follows:
123,576 LOC's, 413 Modules (Classes/Modules/Forms/Reports), 264 Stored Procedures, and fin!
It has a Front-End (FE) which is the bulk of that code, an automated replication application
transferring data from the production JDE ERP system for use by the application I built, and
developed for them an application server architecture to asynchronously process requests without
tying up the FE application.
The legacy application this new one replaced had the following stats:
1,366 LOC's in 12 module(s)
So, getting finally back and replying...

MySQL is trusted by this client organization to handle their production website... LAMP software

I guess for the moment I will leave the DB requirements in Access, and later port them to Free

Thank you all for your helpful responses. Actually last week I came across a link referring to
StarOffice... I had forgotten that origin in the LibreOffice history timeline!
