Database Xtras

While there are a few different methods you could use to implement a database, including using text files, you'll be using an Xtra for this project. One reason to use an Xtra is speed. Xtras are written in C++ and execute much faster than the equivalent Lingo code. Another reason is that it saves you from reinventing the wheel. All the work of programming the database engine has already been done and packaged into the Xtra.

It's up to you to interact with the Xtra through the Xtra's Application Programming Interface (API). The API is simply the set of methods and properties that the Xtra makes available to you, the developer. The API will normally be detailed in the Xtra's documentation.
