Alternatives to Creating a Shared Folder?

Are there any alternatives to sharing a database without creating a shared
folder? I guess I could create a client/server app, but I'm trying to avoid
that. On the other hand, I am also trying to avoid someone deleting the
share to my database folder. Any ideas?

This depends on the database you're using. If it's Access, then you will
need to share the file in some way.
I guess I could create a client/server app, but I'm trying to avoid that.
Any particular reason? Ideally you should use an n-tier solution, but even a
2-tier solution is generally better than a file-based database. However,
this is all dependent on your requirements.
On the other hand, I am also trying to avoid someone deleting the share to
my database folder. Any ideas?


Or worse yet, deleting the database! The advantage of the n-tier approach is
the strict control your server side components allow you to have over any
changes to the database, especially when coupled with stored procedures on
your data tier.

Keith,

For database servers as SQLSever, Oracle and MSDN you don't need a shared
folder.

For database files you can access that using a web- or windowservices
however that you have to do yourself.

I hope this helps

If you're using Access, I would convert your DB to MSDE. You can download
it here:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en

You can use Access' upsizing wizard to perform most of the database
conversion tasks for you, and there's no need for a shared folder.

Hi! I've just experiences a nightmare... I have made a quite good image-upload system in PHP, which make two versions of the image uploaded; one with the size 350*263, and a small thumbnail.

But when uploading the PHP-files to an extern server, I got the error message "Call to undefined function: imagecreatefromjpeg() in...

I'm relatively new to the .cs world. I would like to have some "shared" .cs files, which several solutions can use. I don't want to place these in a ..dll, I simply want them included into various applications. I have tried several methods, but most have failed. The most obvious way (I thought) was to place the .cs files in a parent folder (maybe called "shared"), and then simply drag-n-drop the files into the "Solution Explorer" (files...
