Sleepycat ships Java version of embedded database

Sleepycat Software is to ship Berkeley DB Java Edition, a Java version of its embedded database.
Intended for software developers building high-performance applications in which the user does not have to deal with the database, the product is a Java version of the company's C-based Berkeley DB offering.

"Java is more and more important as a big systems language," said Mike Olson, chief executive officer of Sleepycat. Berkeley

Berkeley DB Java Edition offers Acid (Atomic, Consistent, Isolated, Durable) transactions and recovery for high reliability, record-level locking for high concurrency and schema neutrality for data storage in its native format, according to Sleepycat. 

Berkeley DB features the same storage services as the Berkeley DB engine, but was redesigned in Java to take advantage of Java's portability and services such as deeply integrated threading and New IO, the company said.
