Excerpt of article text...

Over the past five issues, we've covered five database servers that work well with REALbasic: FrontBase, PostgreSQL, OpenBase, MySQL, and Valentina. By way of recap for this series, I'd like to summarize each database server and provide any updates that may be relevant.

FrontBase (www.frontbase.com)
