I am searching for a really high end and cheap (hopefully free) database engine for use with an x86 embedded platform in Home windows CE. Can anybody give a few recommendations? The key things I am searching for are:
- High End (for any real-time system)
- Functional with Compact .Internet framework
Given your requirements the simplest is probably SQL Server Compact Edition
- Performance is fairly good.
- Provides good .Internet interoperability
SQLite is yet another option which meets the suggestions above. You will find numerous tests around that compare the performance of those two under different conditions.
