The Oracle Berkeley DB family of open source, embeddable
databases provides developers with fast, reliable, local persistence
with zero administration.
Berkeley DB is written in C with API bindings for C++, C#,
PHP, Java, Perl,
Python, Ruby, Tcl, Smalltalk, and most other programming languages.
BDB stores arbitrary key/data pairs as byte arrays, and supports
multiple data items for a single key. Berkeley DB is not a relational
Berkeley DB is also used as the common name for three separate
products; Oracle Berkeley DB, Berkeley DB Java Edition, and Berkeley DB
XML. All three are high performance, self-contained,
software libraries which provide data storage services for
applications, devices, and appliances.
Berkeley DB is used within
a wide variety of open source and proprietary
products for telecommunications, networking, storage, security,
enterprise infrastructure, financial services, mobile applications,
health care, smart metering
and many other markets.
