Upgrade to 12.2 from 11.3 - master.* file deploy still an option?

Thinking of upgrading Documaker Studio from 11.3 to 12.2 SE.

Currently use the old master.* and lbylog.* filesystem for development and QA in DM 11.3.


I would like to keep using the flat file MRL system, but I believe I read that DM Studio 12.1+ now requires a db.

Just wanted to see if there were any alternatives and if adding a db could be isolated to just forms development purposes and not for the eventual single-step transaction processing in QA through IDS 2.5/DM 12.2.


My question is: If I develop forms in 12.2 using an SQL (or other) db, would I still be able to extract flat files (master.*) from the DEV MRL, drop them into the deflib in the QA MRL and have transactions processed through the QA IDS 2.5/DM 12.2 instance to produce output without the need for a db similar to DEV?


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks in advance!
