I am looking for a good freeware java embedded database.
The main requirements are:
- able to access large quantities of data at reasonable speed
- reliable
The ones I am looking at are:
- Instant DB
- PointBase
- First SQL
- Hypersonic SQL
- McKoi SQL
- Smyle
- Tiny SQL
- Informix Cloudscape
- JGrinder
- StoredObjects
I would appreciate any comments on any of these.
