comment Is it possible to avoid SQL injection by not using a Query Language for most tasks?
Sure, you would completely avoid SQL injection if the interface to the database wasn't via SQL. That's something of a tautology.

A self referencing table can work well for certain situations, such as nested folder structures. I'm not sure I'd use it for what you are describing, though.

@Zak as I said, you can extend the javascript engine to allow them to talk to each other the way PhoneGap does on mobile apps. You'd define methods that could be called by the javascript on the page which are executed by the native app, or call javascript functs from the native app.

comment Would one use a 2D Gaming Engine for a desktop application?
The specifics depend on the language, but most languages used for desktop programming have pretty complete 2D graphics support, or at least the ability to bring in existing 2D graphics libraries. I don't see what benefit you'd get from using a game engine for a presentation application.
