    MySQL or SQL Server?

    I have a win2000 Advanced Server operating system, and I want to develop a database that will eventually be that of a students records office for a university, I will implement two interfaces, one in Html for internet use (online registration, and student affairs), the other in VB for the administration.

    I was wondering, which would be easier to use, BTW MySQL & SQL Server, and link to both Html and VB?
    What do U recommend as scripting language?
    What do U recommend as HTML editor?

    I have all the design & documentation ready, I just need to implement.
    I'm doing this as a senior project

    Hi,

    I would use MS SQL 2000 as it is more powerful (but more expansive) than MY SQL.

    If your running Win2k then I would suggest ASP.

    I would suggest either FrontPage or dreamweaver for your html'ing

    You got yourself a really nice project.

    My project was some neuro-fuzzy algorithm thing...arghhh, wasn't one of the best periods of my life.

    Why not both - admin and user part in ASP, to be accesible via a browser? What if one of the "Admin" guys would want to access the admin section from home, or from some kind of conference outside of your state?

    If you are using Windows 2000, I'd use ASP as a programming language.

    Tools I'd use:
    InterDev 6.0 for ASP, HomeSite 4.5 for HTML

    Database: MS SQL 2000, because I'm guessing that the database will grow pretty fast, and therefore needs to be reliable, stable.

    I agree, use MS SQL; as for a html editor, notepad or vi. I would also make everything web based.

    SQLServer, Visual InterDev.

    Interdev offers a FrontPage like environment, but is much more powerful. It comes with support for programming languages as well as web apps, plus you can connect to your SQL Server database through it.
