Excerpt of article text...

I've written about the new database engine included with REALbasic 5.5, but now we will take a little time to analyze its performance. If its performance meets the needs of the application you will be creating, then you may not need to resort to third-party databases such as SQLite or Valentina.

For this analysis, we will look at creating tables, inserting data, deleting data, selecting data, and creating indexes. First, you should go to the RB Developer website and download the accompanying project. It contains the framework for a database test application which I will be using to measure performance.

Once you have downloaded the test application, you can just run it and click the "Start Tests" button. The tests will run for a minute or so and create a database that is about 10MB in size.
