indexing tclientdataset: temporary or persistent?

Posted by Phil Birell on March 16, 2009

I'm porting a project with dBase files (DBF) to using MyBase XML, following directions of John of the DelphiLand team. Works out nice!

How about indexing the database, should I use "temporary" or "persistent" indexes? Is the difference that persistent indexes are saved into the XML file, just like DBF indexes were saved in a separate MDX file? What are the pros/cons of persistent versus temporary? Any other tips on indexes and finding records?

Thanks a lot in advance!
