Using MySQL database to manage data

2005-12-25 06:17:15 PM
Hi there,
I'm planning a new biomedical software that will contain biomedical data.
To manage the data I plan to use a MySQL database as it makes it easy
to "play" with the data using queries. I have no experience with data
access components in BCB6 and have only started reading about it (BDE, DBExpress, ADO).
Which is the best option when it comes to reliability and ease of use?
I would like the application to be easy to install, is there anyway to
avoid complex install procedures? (install MySQL, ...)
Thanks for your help,
