Database intensive application

I am a novice. I want to know whether Python can be used to develop
client/server database and web applications like .NET. Which is the
best book/source to learn Python?

There are database access libraries for almost every RDBMS.
Web applications using Django, CherryPy, TurboGears and many other tools
Best book(s): Dive into Python, Learning Python

O'reilly's Learning Python by David Ascher and Mike Lutz has a
reputation for being the best book for learning Python and Yes, Python
has awesome database support and can satisfy almost all database needs.

You've already gotten several excellent answers for web applications;
if you need to create client/server desktop database apps, your best
(and AFAIK, only) choice would be Dabo: http://dabodev.com

IMO you should use Dabo (www.dabodev.com). If you want to strike on your
own check using SQLAlchemy as your database connection.

Check out the O'Reilly books.

Wow. Nobody ever told me Python was *that* kind of language :)

We all seem to know that database connections are expensive and we try to reduce the number of database trips as much as possible. This may sound like a stupid question: What makes a database connection expensive? Is it memory intensive? CPU-intensive? Or does it use a lot of bandwidth? Or none of these? Thanks.
