  • How often have you ported an app from one database engine to another (e.g., MySQL to Oracle)?

    3 times from MySQL to PostgreSQL, but they were all small DBs. A couple times from Access to MS SQL but I'm not sure how much that counts.

    I've never done this when there was more than app using the DB.

    How often have you had completely separate apps writing to the same data store (using completely different code bases)?

    Many, many times.

    Do you depend on non-portable database features?

    Always - but as little as is possible.

    Have you experienced programmers damaging your data because the logic wasn't in the database layer?
