Port app from Windows to Linux
First of all, I have almost no experience in the Linux environment. With that said, I have a few questions:
I have a Windows back end server running as an NT service. This server sends an updated Access MDB file to any/all clients requesting an updated MDB file. Thus, is there an equivalent of a Windows NT service in Linux? Also, is there any way to programmatically create and update Access MDB files in Linux? If not, can you recommend another approach to creating/updating any type of database in Linux?
Also, I use the Windows registry quite extensively for storing and retrieving data. Is there a Linux equivalent the the "registry"?
The front end client is a Windows GUI that I will port to Linux. I plan to use wxWidgets for the port. Can anybody offer any suggestions, tips etc. to make life a little easier for me as I do the port?
Thanx for any assistance offered.
