With SQL DBMSs one :
- have the liberty to define any field to be a varchar no matter how bad the
design is
- have the liberty to define stored procedures for implementing a domain
specific language
- have the liberty to choose the programming language and reporting tools
used to access the database
- have the liberty to use the DBMS out of the box without any other tools

Using a C compiler one even have the liberty to define its own specialized DBMS for an application domain.

So what is the advantage of MV systems ? Received on Wed Jan 18 2006 - 02:47:36 CST
