Choosing a Database

While WorkflowFirst does a great job of hiding the technical details of the data store you're using, if you're planning on having a large number of users or a large amount of data, you should consider which type of data store you should have WorkflowFirst use.

There are two types of data stores you can choose from: Either SQL or NoSQL. WorkflowFirst editions such as Express and Professional all use a SQL data store by default. WorkflowFirst can also create applications that use a NoSQL data store called MongoDB.

In this section we'll go over the benefits and drawbacks of each type of data store.

Please post all questions on the support forum. Thank you.
