|dbFramework | Introduction |
EditionsThere are several editions of dbFramework, each of which focuses on specific types of applications.
The Express edition uses a SQL Compact database by default, which is a simple database that runs without a separate database server. It's the easiest way to get started using dbFramework.
The professional edition of dbFramework utilizes Microsoft SQL Server, which is a server-based database for projects that require larger amounts of data.
The WorkflowFirst edition hides certain features of dbFramework making it easier to focus on using the workflow designer to create applications. By default this edition also uses SQL Compact.
The MongoRAD edition of dbFramework uses the MongoDB database by default. This is a free, server-based, NoSQL database that can easily handle vast amounts of data and scales very easily using its sharding technology. MongoRAD adds a number of features not normally available to users of the MongoDB database, such as unlimited document size and ACID transactions.
For more information to help you decide which of these editions to use, please refer to the section on choosing a data store.
