Alternative database backend
« on: January 27, 2002, 09:13:26 am »
Hi Geoff,
I'm interested in your intent for the subject above and have a suggestion.
I Use a PostgreSQL backend to my teams project management website, but use EA for our S/W modeling.  I'd like to use our DBMS to interface with EA, through ODBC, say, but with a slight twist.
I think it would be cool if you were to upgrade the schema to allow multiple projects within the same database and use the database as a repository for existing objects.  This way you could promote reuse of components.  The objects could be grouped by namespace or pallettes

Incidentally - great product!
Regards,
Andy.

Hello,

We are current building support for other backend databases (Oracle, DB2, SQL Server etc) and we will take into account your request for multiple projects in the one database.  Although there are many issues (our side) that will need to be overcome, we will see what can be done. Thanks for the feedback.

i know, this posting is very old, but does EA now suppoort DB2 as a backend-DB?

if not, is it planned in future releases?

it is important for me, because one of our customers wants this feature!

Support for DB2 as a repository is still in the future.
