Developer DB Instances
- My company uses Oracle. I was recently discussing the Fowler article
on evolutionary DB design
(http://www.martinfowler.com/articles/evodb.html) and it was met with
some skepticism that it would be practical for app devs to maintain
their own Oracle instance. We have about 30 app developers.
Does anyone have experience with a 30+ developer shop where each dev
has their own Oracle instance?

money picks a platform/language that they like and implements a
solution. If enough people find the solution useful then eventually it
becomes a de-facto standard (at least for a while). The result is that
solutions run the gamut of platforms and languages.
The only firm statistics that I have seen were a virtual dead heat
between Macs and Linux with Windows a remote distant third.
Now the system that I work on is a Java web application. The new version
of the software has greater data-management needs than previous versions
and so we adopted Derby + Hibernate. So far it seems to work just fine,
but then we have just started with full-up system testing and haven't
run any load tests yet.
Using Hibernate isn't quite so obvious as the Hibernate fanatics seem to
believe. I think that their documentation is difficult to navigate and
important details are hidden away in tiny little remote corners. My
inner cynic tells me that this could be a strategy for creating a market
for Hibernate how-to books.
