Macintosh Client/Server Database Development Summary

Liam Breck <breck@external.umass.edu> writes: The Macintosh Client/Server Database Development Summary is an overview I've written for developers and managers involved in the evaluation, design, and construction of multi-user database systems. It covers over 30 software tools for Macintosh and cross-platform development in three categories:

  • Client application development tools
    • development environments; visual and OO tools; 4GLs
  • Data access layers
    • middleware for 3GLs, 4GLs and end-user apps
  • Database servers
    • SQL servers; multi-user and local-access engines

The eight-page (20K ASCII text) document provides an explanation of each category and a brief description of each product. Its sources are vendors' product literature, industry periodicals, and discussions with users and vendors' tech support staff. It is purely informational and contains no propaganda. The current revision is 1.2, released 12-Dec-94.
