Is it a good idea to use CouchDB for a web application that is going to be platform agnostic (from tablet to PC):
- The app is a big form which I need to be able to modify at will.
- I also need to scan the results to retrieve the data to send some file to help the client.
- I need to be able to upload the results to a master server.
- I want to mainly use the app offline and online at will.
The data is questions with answers and comments linked to them. At the end a percentage is generated for the user and depending on the result, a call to another application will be made to "send" information to the user depending on its results.
The application needs to be offline because we don't know if the user is connected to the internet at the time they answer the questions. The data needs to be the same on all platforms (replication is a given).
If there are not enough details, ask and I will explain more thoroughly.
After all your answers here is what i have concluded.
I am gonna use SQLite and sync it with our sql databases.
NoSQL is not made for the kind of app i am working on.
Using what you know is sometimes the way to go
If you dont know how to use the technology and intend to use it for a huge project your coding alone. dont.
