Bullshit. There are plenty of cross-platform RDBMSes that are not
implemented in this grotesque proprietary abomination that Java is.
My comment, or Sun's decision ?
Sun's decision. Compulsive Javamania.
There are bulkloads of programming languages and frameworks that allow
cross-platform application development way better than Java will ever
How many of those cross-platform RDBMs were :
- available in 2004 (when the decision was made to upgrade the OOo1
Base iteration to something new) ?
Postgres (back then without SQL) version 1 was released in 1989.
And before Postgres there was Ingres from the same developers. That's
where the name comes from, after all.
- didn't require masses of developer investment time and resources to
integrate into the codebase ?
The SDBC driver was already there, developed by third-parties.
- ran on OSX, Windows and Linux ?
PostgreSQL runs on:
It's even *shipped* with the default installation of MacOS X Server.
- weren't Java based ?
If you're a completely obsessive Java fetishist, you *can* use PL/Java
for server-side application logic though.
- could be made to run in a single file and be portable across various
I don't see a reason for the "single file" requirement.
It's installed separately anyway.
