Hello

I have been developping datadriven applications for a while now. I used sql
server and msde.
but I am on the hunt for an integrated database for a web application I want
to write: what I mean is I want to have a file based DB engine (if possible)
and include the file in a directory of the web app and access it. I just do
not want to deal with the install of a service when redistibuting the app.
I am considering ms access but I want to know if I could have multiple
connections to it via ado.net since the web app will have multiple users
hiting it. I guess that my first question.
the other one is :
Does any body know of an file integrated DB engine ? I am looking at
vistaDB and deseperatley looking for some xml based ones ?

You will struggle with MS Access - once you start to load suers against it
it will fall over, and you'll get connection errors.

Take a look at single file database systems like Accuracer, you only hav to
buy a single licence and you can ship it as many times as you want. It also
supports ODBC so you could use it from ASP.NET.

Never used it myself mind you, if its any good let me know......
