Subject RE: Repositories

I've finally got round to joining the dev list!

Personally I don't trust databases with things of this nature, and would
prefer to stick with using the file system. Just this week there was another
'I need help urgently' message on the user list - James went screwy because
of database issues. I do use the database for user management though... so I
think the mix should stay!

I haven't played with derby/cloudscape, but if it's anything like HSQLDB
(another pure java db), when running in embedded mode, only one app can
connect to the database at a time, which is a real pain in the ass. Of
course, as a default option so that people don't have to set up their own
database server to use the db repositories, it could be nice.

Daniel.
