we are planning to develop our own inhouse CRM system / platform from scratch. We decided to go this way because all of the "standard" products needs to be customized in that way that we decided that it's better to write our own.
Actually we think about of what tool to use to develop this system.
1. .NET (Visual Studio / C#)
2. Oracle JDeveloper in combination with ADF
We are free to decide what to use... the only thing we have to take care of is that Microsoft SQL Server is a MUST (a decision that has to do with history and our other used ERP systems).
So my questions are very simple :
- Does it make sense to use JDev and ADF in combination with SQL Server ? Or does it only make sense in combination with Oracle DB ?
- I can't find any price informations about JDev and ADF.... is it free to use ??
check the matrix certification:http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/jdev/jdev11gr2-cert-405181.html#Databases
the SQL Server 2008 is certified.
If your server is a WLS, that license includes a ADF License.
But for prices is better you contact with a partner or with oracle directly
