Valentina Database Now Supports Ruby on Rails on Mac OS X

Hi Peter,
Hi Greg,
Hi All,

Thank you, Peter, for your comments about Valentina database. :slight_smile:
Sorry it have take so long from us to move Valentina to Ruby world.
And actually we have yet need do few important steps to enable all unique
Valentina features you also mention.

I am going spend few nearest weeks on the RUBY-CORE list to get help from
core-developers of ROR. I hope they will be friendly. :slight_smile:

And this is cheaper than MySQL and PostgreSQL and SQLite by how much?

Having no affiliation with this company whatsoever and have to say
this is a bit unfair towards this excellent db. It's true it's not
free, but some people like paying for the benefits of a database.

To Greg.

Well, do you all measure by price and money ???
What price of your life? My? Our children? :slight_smile:

Or another example.

One Valentina user have switch to Valentina from mySQL his ORM framework,
which is EOF-like, and made for REALbasic. This user have report us that
some complex query mySQL do in 30 minutes, Valentina do in 30 seconds. For
Valentina 3.5.2 (upcoming) we have made it even faster to near 1 second.

            30 minutes vs 1 second.
            1800 times faster.

How much money you need to pay to get mySQL soooo fast? :^)

Yes. Why on earth would I want to spend money on closed source
software when I don't have to?

My experience with benchmarks is that any of them can be tuned to look
good in a particular situation. For example your particular case
seems to be the "EOF-like" variety, clearly an edge case for which
Valentina is specifically tuned.

I don't pay any money to use MySQL and it's much, much faster than I
actually need it to be.

Valentina developers usually are developers who are NOT satisfied with all
these mentioned dbs. They come to Valentina and tell us own stories. Some of
them are here:

That's great but as long as Valentina is closed source I won't even
try it, much less pay money to use it or advise my company to use it.
Welcome to the future of software.

I have never hear that SqlLite is faster of mySQL for real-world dbs. And I
have hear only once that Postgre was faster mySQL for some complex many CPU
system, but usually in comparison the say something like: "Postgre comparing
to mySQL is like a tortilla".

I don't really know why you want to stay on this speed tangent when
the real issue here is spamming the list with an off-topic ad for a
closed source project. Get over yourself and your "fast" database and
let people discover the project through Google like normal. I'm sure
there are billions of developers searching for a "faster than anything
out there" database right this minute.
