Choosing between in memory collections or database tables to store data RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    When designing systems, it is possible to arrange data in an in memory collection (array, Hashtable, etc), or in a database table?

    What factors influence this decision? Is it the data? I.E. it's just a simple set of names with no relations then it can go in a collection. What else?

  • you mean database table or Dataset/DataTable...  I am trying to find out if this is a question similar to config Vs database or Hashtable Vs DataTable...  to answer appropriately

  • Do you want the data to persist? Or is it transitory? These are questions to consider.
