    Lightbulb JavaDB characterstics

    I need to use a datastore. I tried manipulating files. But its a lot of work.

    Recently I found out about JavaDB on the internet.

    Even though it was installed on my system automatically by J2SE 6, I didnt notice it until I opened the Add/Remove Programs panel.

    Has anyone used JavaDB. Any comments on it. I seem to be attracted to its "less resource consuming" characteristic. Its not like the others big RDBMS.

    Hello jacinto,

    Yes I have used JavaDB in the past. It's really useful when you do not have access to MySQL or Sybase databases etc.
    JavaDB is 100% Java and best of all its small and like you say, easy on resources.

    Here are some good links that will help you get started:

    Sure why not, there might only be issues when you have massive amount of queries but thats a whole other story and you need to find a database that works for you. However for just any normal site it should work just nice and dandy
