It is very sad to see such postings. I thought that software and especially Internet community is above those aggressive, destructive and quite myopic tendencies. This is the first time I observer something like that and I hope this is the last one.

Then you should stop using PostgreSQL too. I've noticed on this map (http://developer.postgresql.org/) of PostgreSQL developers at least four developers from Germany.

You mean I should stop using software from the U.S. and quit my job at an American company in return, just because I disagree with the politics of your government? I mean it's not as if you were funding the German state by downloading it for free.

While you're at it, you might stop using Star-/Open Office as well - it's originally from a German company, IIRC it's still maintained by mainly German people and if that doesn't make it kind of dirty, I don't know what else.

Oh, and I prefer PostgreSQL as well, but for entirely different reasons.

I would say that the fact that SAP is a German product
is an excellent reason not to use it. I'll keep my Postgresql
thank you.

Nice to see
I am very glad to see that SAP is continuing with its commitment to Open Source. It's moves such as this on the part of software providers that will help to insure the continuing success of the Open Source movement. SAP understands that better products will be produced when they have more people testing them, looking through the code, providing patches, etc. Yet another brick is being pulled out of MS's proprietary software wall.

Thanks,
Ron

Re: no cursors...
Indeed there is support for this feature:

with Result Set

So there's no reason sticking with PostgreSQL :-)

Returning cursors from stored procedures is now supported and most of the programming interfaces support them as well.
