This question i suppose is only halfway Matlab related, i want to set up an SQL database from my home computer and be able to access the information using Matlab from the same or other computers.
Does any one have a suggestion on how to set up this project ?
It is just a learning experience for me and i only have some SQL experience, though plenty of Matlab experience.
My advice would be to use the open-source database program PostgreSQL: http://www.postgresql.org/.
In order to access a database directly from MATLAB, the easiest (but priciest!) way is to get the Database Toolbox. You might also be able to connect by using tools available from the File Exchange, http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/, but I have never tried that myself.
