jet, pick style DB library for Java?
I'm looking for a compact somewhat SQL compliant database that I can distribute as a .war file to run under tomcat. I don't know that much about windows programming, but I believe I am looking for something like the "jet" and "pick" databases described for windows, but written in Java. Ease of distribution and smallness are more important than robustness. Any suggestions?
Have you tried hsqldb?
that looks like what I need. Thanks!
If you are doing multithreaded things HSQL may not work for you.
i'm trying it out right now. i think it will work for the application i'm using it for (1 time data collection, then people come back to read the data). the other option is "flat file" which makes development much more tedious.
