Filebased Storage: LH or BDB?


This has become a somewhat common question in the last months.

Berkeley DB is recommended over LH because of the following reasons:
  • BDB is being actively developed by a dedicated team and is in use in many places other than Coherence
  • BDB is a very stable, widely used, well known and predictable database
  • BDB is owned, supported, actively maintained and developed by Oracle
  • Also, note that LH is not often used and generally customers are migrating over to BDB from LH
There are no particular cases where LH would be recommended over BDB.
