I've been trying to develop a mid-scale (size wise) application in the past few days. Something I'm doing for fun, to get some experience. My application is some sort of log system, it can have different users, each user has its own log entries (or records) and so on. I've been creating this app using text files, users being folders. In my opinion this is very ineffective, so I've been thinking in the use of databases for my data.
I was wondering, what would be best for me to use to store data.
- MS Access
- Text files
- Other alternatives
I guess you can call my app a C.R.U.D application, or sort of. I want my data to be kept forever pretty much. What do you guys suggest I should do this?
