Mainly doing php development, I'm touching about everything concerning web development. Looking forward to make my hands dirty by developing an iPhone app.

3) When addressing the multiple type of data for the same application, you didn't talk about using a combination of data storage, each having its task. But I take it I'll have to consider the role of each kind of data seperatly. 4) I heard there is other type of data storage aside from flat file, and relational database, I would like to know about them too, as pointed in the OP. Now, I will edit the OP accordingly, to reflect what I said in those comments.

comment How to choose how to store data?
+1 Great answer, and I already learn a lot from it. That's why I hate to do that, but there is a few point which were not properly addressed. and that is most probably because I couldn't express them adequately enough. 1)Minor point, but when I was talking about platform, I was in fact talking about development platform. But you addressed this point anyway. 2) By portability, I meant re-usability, but your point on portability was in fact a point I hadn't considered, but it revealed itself quite relevant.

@notabene: Thanks I appreciate, though I would have like to hear from the guy who gave me -1, after all I want to contribute in a positive way.

@notabene: For example, I'm sure there is scenario where using an external data storage is not used, but instead data would be stored in the "code".

@notabene: I knew about this thread, and somehow thought the scope of my question was different as this one. The was searching an answer for a component-based game (whatever it is, but I take there are other kind of game out there), and had already reduced the choice in a way, and nearly each answer handled one kind of technology. On the other hand I'm asking for a basic methodology on how to choose, and I would like to have more of a comparison. Now, if the community still think of it as a duplicate, I will consider deleting this question and try to get my answer on the other thread.

I would like to know, why I get a down-vote? Is my question too broad? off-topic? Is there a need for additional information?
