Likelihood to Recommend

Progress OpenEdge

I have had limited exposure to other development environments, but I have found Openedge to be well suited for the purposes that we are using it for. We have a windows client-server application that has been in use for over 20 years and has held it's age well. We also have a web based product using openedge appserver to access our backend code. The appserver functions well and we have been happy with it

SQLite

I recommend the use of SQLite for embedded systems.If you need to store a large amount of data, store blobs, use triggers, handle multiple accesses at the same time, and need to optimize indexes, then I would recommend using another database system.SQLite should also be considered if the installation/configuration of a heavier database system is a problem.

Pros

Progress OpenEdge

  • Openedge databases are practically bulletproof, even when shot down abnormally. The offer complete transaction scoping, before imagining, and also after imaging for roll foward capability.
  • Openedge has a very powerful and easy to learn 4GL programming language that can be used in a traditional or object oriented manner.
  • Openedge also has powerful web services components, fully integrating both SOAP and RESTful web services.
  • Openedge is completely scaleable from 1 user to a fully distributed global enterprise solution.

SQLite

  • The biggest one has to be that it is freeware and open source as well. It means for an entry level person who wants to learn relational database and even for a team in the early development stage where security and size of the data are not much, it is a perfect fit in those cases.
  • It requires no extra configuration or space because it a server-less installation and also done in just a few mins. So, installing this is never a blocker. It is the actual lite version of SQL as the name suggests and it very powerful and capable of doing all the things which SQL can do, but lacks some of the security and advanced features.
  • It prepares the data for us in a structured form in terms of Tables with a file size less than 1 Mb for the complete database entries. It saves us a lot of physical space.
  • It is the most suitable DB for Android systems because mobile apps do not have a lot of space or resources for a separate DB, but this one integrates with the whole ecosystem very nicely and we are able to make the most out of it and that too with a file lesser than 1 Mb in size.

Cons

Progress OpenEdge

  • Lack of multi-threading capability has been a complaint among other developers here.

SQLite

  • Better data recovery when the database becomes corrupt would be ideal. I've learned to minimize it by closing the database more frequently, but it can still happen.
  • Lack of built-in data encryption.
  • SQLite is a single-user DBMS. If a multi-user system is required, then an alternative is required.

I have had a wonderful experience with SQLite because in my every project I use SQLite in the development phase because it's really fast, doesn't crash and very easy to maintain as well. It saves a lot on physical memory and dedicated server usage. It has all the basic functionality you would need to get the job done and that too at no cost at all. What more could you ask for !!!

Alternatives Considered

Progress OpenEdge

Openedge is a superior competitor when compared to Oracle. It offers everything you need - scalability, replication, encryption, transaction scoping, and tuneable performance. It is a true enterprise level solution, that has been around since 1984. You could pay more for a name, or pay less for better performance. It is fully supported, and as technology changes, Progress changes to support it

SQLite

SQLite stacks quite well against Microsoft SQL Server management studio however we need the Microsoft security for our data MDSN documentation is poor but available.

Return on Investment

Progress OpenEdge

  • The speed of development and ease of learning has had a positive impact on ROI
  • The cost of use has had a negative one. In this era of free tools everywhere, paying for a product is a challenge to accept.

SQLite

  • We could start immediately to work with SQLite.
  • It's very easy. The document is well done and easy to find.
  • Having such good database system, free of charge and for any purpose is good news.
