Better be pretty robust, have scads and scads of disk space available.

How is it that you intend to store the documents into the database?  Do you need one with a file system, like Oracle?

Pretty broad question.

Hi ,

There are plenty of databases that can handle this task --  depends upon how the software is configured to store within the database.  Are you storing the catalog of components?  The physical  data files (such as a RIP file, or an CAD drawing (such as an autocad file))?  
Is it storing the primative information to generate the drawings -- drawing coordinates and connection types??

I've seen many companies even use MS-ACCESS as a basic store..

I prefer more robust systems than access, but what you are going to need dependings upon on some of those questions I asked  above   factoring in  overall size and integration of drawings....

I am biased to ORACLE,   DB2 for more enterprise scale systems,   but that is me....
