What Developers Want: A Talk with DB Technology Product Manager Manyi Lu
By carlaking on Oct 22, 2007
I caught Manyi Lu at the database table to talk about what developers are looking for in Java and beyond. Not surprisingly she reported that, "Developers in China want open source databases and we have many to offer. Java DB is a pure Java database for Java developers, and postgreSQL is an enterprise database people can use for deployment.
Students love Java programming and love the Java DB for that, but they also use PostgreSQL within the enterprise for website development, and Java DB for pet projects all the way up to the enterprise. And JavaDB is included when you download JDK6."
Java DB is Sun's supported distribution of the open source Apache Derby 100% Java technology database.
Manyi will be talking about databases tomorrow. Here's a link to some commentary about her popular session in Hyderbad.
