Hiya,

since NeXTSTEP 3.3 did not contain any DB server software, I wonder if there
is any alternative?

I would really like to play with DBKit, but I can't find any SQL database servers for NeXTSTEP...  :(

Suggestions are very welcome!

A good place to start would be researching MiniSQL... looks like an adapter was released for it to work on NS3.3.

Also looking for a SQL db to run on Previous to practice with on NS3.3. Does Sybase that comes bundled with NS1 run on NS3.3?

What are other people using at the moment?

Thanks

(Just did a search for "SQL" on this forum and this was one of the threads that showed up).

Hello Ptek: Here is the NeXTSTEP version of Sybase 4.1 https://fsck.technology/software/NeXT/NeXTSTEP%20Applications/Sybase%204.1%20NeXTSTEP/ , I think it was bundled with early versions of NeXTSTEP not sure if it will work on Openstep.

Do you think it would be possible to use Python to query a database with help from Azure SQL?

Hello :  Python and Azure SQL in Windows from outside of NeXTSTEP proper OS this may be possible with Openstep for NT , I'm not sure where in the timeline spectrum of operating systems and developer tools you are landing as this sounds like a mix of Windows and NeXT.  NeXTstep began its transformation to Mac OSX in 1997

You may find this Demonstration of Web Objects on Windows from 1995 https://youtu.be/U9sIi9SjCAA

What is an outline of your project?  You have an existing database?

He also shows connectivity and creations of databases all this was revolutionary turning static webpages to dynamic bam WebObjects as code named Tsunami .

I found Python for NeXT  https://ftp.nice.ch/Attic/openStep/unix/developer/language/python/

Thanks for that site, it seems to be a good one along with the swiss site ftp.nice.ch. Ahh miss the old days when the apps were under 10mb  :'( . 2.8Mb I can assume that GUID won't be supported with the SQL base, will have to break the GUID down into 4x 'int' for the SQL db.
