  • Single-file database
  • SQL'92 (DDL & DML) support

  • Works great on all versions of Windows - from 98 to Vista, doesn't require any updates or service packs
  • Ultra-fast in-memory tables
  • Unmatched ease-of-use
  • Strong encryption
  • BLOB compression
  • Free for personal use
  • Full source code available
  • Royalty-free distribution

Depends, if you have a single user database this should be ok.
For multi-user environments I have my doubts. First freeware that comes in mind is MSSQL (MySQL), second is Firebird.
In this I would always go for MSSQL (MySQL), but that's personal choice.

I have used Absolute for years and never had a problem. It's easy to work with. Be sure to use their DBManager. If I ever had a problem, they have always responded.

Hello,


Iím using Absolute Database for long time now, the most stable database I ever used, and handles complex queries just like any known, expensive databases, the best part easy to use, no DLL, no extra files to distribute, they have superb support if you need them.



Iím using this database for very big tables (millions of rows) and I have no issue with it.


Not only I recommend this database, but I encourage you to test it and use it in your application, you canít get better than this, all above list features are correct and much more.


Hope this helps

Hi All,

I am using Absolute Database since 2009. I had never a little problem in my application.

When i create new invoice in client side. Then DB Grid draw items very slowly.

Further more. If only one client connected to server then there is nothing. But if there is more than one client is active then i face slow speed

Howdy,

I've been using Absolute for almost 10 yrs. I've had no problems. Their support & documentation is excellent.

Default Good, but consider moving to FireBird.

Good, but consider moving to FireBird. Embeeded, Client / Server, soon on Version 4.

If you are a Licensed user of ABDB, then its okay.
