"For four weeks last month and early this month, eWEEK
and sister publication PC Magazine carried out a comprehensive
benchmark of the latest available versions of five server
databases. These tests showed us on a level playing field which
database performed best when used with a Java-based application
server. We also were able to evaluate different approaches to
database server tuning that can help every one of these products
To our knowledge, this is the first time a computer publication
has published database benchmark results tested on the same
hardware since PC Magazine did so in October 1993.
We tested IBM's DB2 7.2 with FixPack 5, Microsoft Corp.'s SQL
Server 2000 Enterprise Edition with Service Pack 2, MySQL AB's
MySQL 4.0.1 Max, Oracle Corp.'s Oracle9i Enterprise Edition
22.214.171.124.1 and Sybase Inc.'s ASE (Adaptive Server Enterprise)
