Bug: UDB crashes

UDB 8.1.2 maybe? Anyway, after connecting, i can consistently crash it in one of two or three ways (so far). That is, the box stays up, but the DB goes down, and a DB restart brings it up in an inconsistent state.

Easiest is a few words long, but technically incorrect.

SET CURREN PATH = CURRENT SCHEMA

Makes me wonder how IBM sells this stuff as being real.

I'm sold, In the business world, it's Oracle for me. The other DBs simply do not compare.

I hate the database market.

Oracle is great, but you need to be or have available guru-type admins to get anything done. But, there's lots of great documentation and books about all of the platform-specific stuff. On the other hand, you need third party management tools to do anything.

DB2 is pretty good, but everything is obtuse in an annoying IBM way. All documentation comes from IBM, there's almost no good third party books or articles.

MySql is free, but it doesn't take care of your data.

Informix was a great database... great docs, good command line tools easy administration. Except now they were absorbed by IBM :(

Well, really cool stuff done. Basic stuff is easy, and the newsgroups are an excellent resource.

That is most certainly not true. The standard (albeit Java) tools are good for most tasks.

And MySQL isn't a database. No transactions, no structure, no nothing. Great for qick 'n dirty programmers though.
