Filebased Storage: LH or BDB?
By csoto on Mar 31, 2011
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
