About the Oracle Berkeley DB

OracleLogo.gif

Oracle Berkeley DB is the industry-leading open source, embeddable, key-value database that provides developers with fast, reliable, local persistence with zero administration. Oracle Berkeley DB is a library that links directly into your application. Your application makes simple function calls, rather than sending messages to a remote server, eliminating the performance penalty of client-server architectures. Oracle Berkeley DB eliminates the overhead of SQL query processing, enabling applications with predictable access patterns to run faster.
