Thanks Abe,

I forgot to mention before that this application mind to be Open Source,
so connection to DB should be also based on an OS solution.

On the other hand, I've used PostgreSQL for several years, but MySQL
fits better for this project. Although I want to give to the users the
possibility of change database server easily to fit their specific needs.

I think ADO.Net MySQL driver may be a good choice.

Thanks a lot.

Best regards,
