Re: Company thought DB2 will be better than Oracle.

P: n/a
Is there any Transparent Application Fallover in DB2? IBM should
copy it from Informix till it resolves DB2 instance disappearance issue.
The best part of it is db2start command will start everything without any
problem as if DB2 has forget and forgiven everything.

If DB2 has all of this, I think "LOL" should be built into Informix

You probably haven't turned on "Transparent Application Fallover" yet.

It's not flat? But then why don't I fall off? Tell me that, smarty-pants!

Wow, sounds like this is one thread that has been beaten too death, sneezed
in, coughed in, crapped in. This has to be one of the worst and nastiest
debates I have ever read from any newsgroup. Did anyone actually conviced
the other to see the other's point of view or change the way they thought
about the product they sided with? I doubt it. Sounds like this one could go
on for another 100 responses in this thread.

Actually, I didn't read it that way. Which newsgroup do you mean by the
way?

It started off as a "merits" debate but pretty quickly, from an Informix
newsgroup perspective anyway, moved into a debate about the extent to which
IBM is likely to be successful in retaining the Informix users who decide to
abandon Informix. For sure some strong views have been expressed about IBM
as a company, and its database strategy, but is that so bad?

Not even close to "worst." Visit can.taxes and watch the monkeys
fling dung at one another. It basically got hijacked by some "tax
protestors" a couple of years ago, and rational discussion has
essentially disappeared.
