Sanjay and Michael
We are currently are heavy users of Oracle, SQL Server and mySQL. Personaly I'm highly competent is SQL Server and Oracle but not very competent with mySQL.
I was under impression that DAAB 3.x on GetDotNet was simply the Data access portion of Enterprise Lib but I may be mistaken. It appears I need to take a look at the DAAB 3.x to clear up my own confussion.
>> On another note, I will say that Shaun Walker is correct in saying that the current DAL architecture is good for alternate data providers. With version 3.x, once you install the oracle data provider, you can run DNN right
out of the box without recompiling ANY of the core dlls. I think this is in itself a great achievement considering how complex DNN really is. <<
Yes I think everyone would agree this should also be a design goal of any alternate solution as well. Shaun and the DNN core team had excellent forsight on this issue. The person installing DotNetNuke should be able to go to
web config file point to new data provider and voila everything just works.
