I have been trying to do some research on "database independence" and have not had much luck. I've seen in this forum topics about "data independence" logical vs. physical and even distribution independence (not to mention one spam about financial independence. But nothing on what I hear termed "Db independence". To the folks I talk to "DB independence" seems to mean that I have an application that talks to DBx and I can swap it out for DBy at any time? Seems to me that's a bit simplistic and, curiously, I don't see many people in this forum, on the web or anywhere else talking about how to do this and the extent to which its possible. Any ideas?
