&gt; ok, btw, what I wanted to mention: there seems to be a very
&gt; (albeit beta) implementation of B-Link trees at<br>
&gt; <a moz-do-not-send="true"
 href="" target="_blank"></a>
with excellent documentation.<br>
&gt; Unfortunately, it has the wrong license...<br>
We can just ask for a license change ;-)<br>
Yes yes can someone explore this option?&nbsp; Ersin, J&ouml;rg do you think you
can approach them?<br>
good news: I did approach him and he is open to releasing his project
under a license what would allow us to use it. In fact, he is working
on making SimpleDBM an optional storage backend for Derby, see <a
and <a class="moz-txt-link-freetext"
He even recommended we use Derby itself, but the discussion in the
issues above indicates that this would not be a easy route to go: the
tight coupling of Derby's storage layer would probable prevent us from
using it as a backend engine just like it makes it hard for him to use
SimpleDBM as a Derby backend.<br>
So, in conclusion, I think that SimpleDBM is an option we should
definitely keep an eye on.<br>
