What’s It Good for?

Gadfly still lacks some features of production databases, but what is there is reputedly stable and fast. It could be useful for a local client that gathers data and occasionally downloads from or uploads to a master database elsewhere. It’s an excellent tool for learning about client/server and relational concepts at zero cost. However, a major niche we see for it is in data laundering; you can develop scripts rapidly and save the output to local Gadfly tables, committing the results to a destination database only when the system is fully refined and working.
