The name says it all

by stress junkie In reply to database replication

Let's see. The word "database" means a database. The word "replication" means "to make a copy of". So the expression "database replication" means to make a copy of a database.

The details of implementing a database replication scheme are pretty idiomatic to the software that you are using. The tragic comedy of this is that the acronym "SQL" stands for "Sybase Query Language", yet Sybase is not exactly the leader in SQL compliant database software. Although you didn't say so I imagine that you are talking about implementing database replication in Microsnot SQL Server.

The details of implementing a database replication scheme are very dependent upon your particular circumstances. The only thing that I can say is RTFM.

Note that, for me, RTFM is just an expression and is not intended to imply a sanctimonious attitude on my part. :)

SQL Server

by Tony Hopkinson In reply to database replication

does it. It was I while back when I had a go with it, hopefully it isn't as flakey as it used to be.
MS called it Publication, it looked clever but didn't work. Haven't seen it since SQL Server 7.0 though, fingers crossed.
