Hi there,

The better you can do is to go to mySQL. There's no emdeded database in Mono, like you can find in Python (SQLite). Use .net connector, downloading it from MySQL site and start working on ado.net 2.0 basis. Forget about the entity framework, it does not exist on Mono althouth you can give a change to Linq to SQL.

I also think you can query a MSSQL database including the Microsoft references by the manual way.

There is also a .net connector for SQLite (works great) and for PosgresSQL.

Hi, I'm new in the forum and Mono and I have a question about databases.

I've programmed something in Windows .Net technology and it have SQL Server

I ask if exists any alternative implementation of SQL Server for Mono or I
have to use MySQL to develop applications for Mono.

If exists any native alternative to SQL Server, How to configure it in
