Hi, I have this question: Which one would be best suitable for a simple web application considering following: 1. There is only one table in the database. 2. The table can have max of 100 rows and 4 columns. 3. The server is Win NT with all required drivers. 4. No RDBMS is required as there is only one table. Thanks.

If cost of product is not an issue and reliability is important, I will go with oracle.

Heck, if it was static you could put it into a Java class, XML, or even hard coded. Even cloudscape, which comes with J2EE, would work for such a small table. But Oracle would definitely be overkill. MySql is overkill, in the fact of its power for such a simple data related issue, but it is also free. And if you know Databases and how to set them up, make grants, etc, then MySQL is good. Mark
