Subject [jira] [Created] (JAMES-2586) Implement a Postgres-specific backend

----------------------------------------

             Summary: Implement a Postgres-specific backend
                 Key: JAMES-2586
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-2586
             Project: James Server
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Matthieu Baechler


James has a JPA implementation of most interfaces that allows to deploy it on top of some
popular RDBMS.
However, while useful for some kind of applications, ORM are usually a bad fit for applications
requiring high performance like a mail server.
As an abstraction, it also prevents from using advanced features of a given RDBMS.
For most usages, James would probably run great on top of Postgres, given that we use advanced
features to implement search, for example.

A good strategy would be to implement all interfaces implemented by JPA with a modern Postgres
driver.
