Want additional DB or OS support in ColdFusion?

September 19, 2005

Are you burnin' for built-in PostgreSQL support in Macromedia ColdFusion (BlueDragon already has this)? How about FreeBSD? Debian Linux Support? Fedora Support? Additional J2EE servers? 64-Bit Operating systems?

Then go and take the ColdFusion vendor support survey.

Your site is very ugly on firefox.. I can't really fill in the other input tags and I'm writing this without being able to see the actual words.. The books are covering the comment space. Evert
Ah I can now =) its actually now on top of my first comment.
That's weird I'm using firefox myself... I am looking into this.
Evert - a few questions - are you using any firefox plugins that might change the way things are displayed? Ad blocking, custom style sheets?
Lets see.. I forgot to say: I'm using FireFox 1.5 BETA 1. So this might be the actual problem. My extensions: All-In-One Sidebar MozCC ProxyButton Sage User Agent Switcher Web Developer Toolbar Hope this helps
Ah, thanks I'll give it a try in FF 1.5
Pete, Can you give us a couple bullet points (and/or links) on why you prefer PostgreSQL over mySQL? Do you have performance reasons, or just a preference? Thanks!
Hi Pete, I'm building a new website builder that uses MySQL instead of MS SQL primarily on the basis that: (a) MySQL is well documented whereas as PostgreSQL seems to be less (b) The fact there is a book called High Performance MySQL which finally answers what I needed to know about scalable MySQL. There doesn't seem to be an equivalently awesome resource for PostgreSQL. (c) easy and powerful replication/scalability bits. Do you have any comments on which database you prefer under a scenario where the database should ultimately be able to scale to 10 million websites which means, obviously, many times more records than 10 million? Would you prefer PostgreSQL under this scenario? I am using a home brewed horizontal partitioning system. The data would actually reside among multiple databases with a master database that would tell the application which database the individual website data resides in. e.g. [master table] | | | [table 1] [table 2] [table 3] Where individual site data resides in table 1,2,3 and the mappings appear in master.
Mark and Sunny I'm preparing a blog post to answer your questions.
Pete, I found the problem! I had javascript disabled for debugging, causing google adsense not to show up and screwing things up. Sorry for the trouble, Evert
Looking forward to the blog post, Pete, many thanks!
Hi Pete, I'm eager to see the comparison blog post you have planned for PostgreSQL and mySQL. Just wanted to send a friendly reminder. Many thanks for your website -- it's a great resource. Mark
