Hi Guy,

I use PostGreSQL as alternative to porting SQL server app, I am not so 
sure about the compatibilty and stability but I can use PL/PGSQL 
function as alternative of SQL server stored procedure, I don't know for 
other SQL platforms stuff, even not all of them can be ported. but 
untill now, I can see it well working in my web application
