Subject Re: How could I use CouchDB in an e-commerce app?
Date Tue, 27 Oct 2009 15:59:19 GMT
You use bad terminology.
If you need application, you need production-ready database. Couchdb
is production-ready, so, you can write application. "E-commerce
application" is subset of "application", so, you can use couchdb for
e-commerce.
