is an Open Source version of Daffodil DB, our commercial Java Database.
One$DB is a standards based (J2EE-certified, JDBC 3.0 and SQL 99 compliant),
platform independent, footprint size open source database server that can be embedded
into any application and requires zero or minimal administration. Daffodil
DB is the first Java database that has shown the capability to take on enterprise
databases with its high performance in real time environments, Compiere
compatibility being the best example so far. One$DB being an open source
version of Daffodil DB is exactly the same as Daffodil DB barring a few
features and has been made available in both Embedded and Network editions.
Open Source SQL databases are the need of the hour because databases
are infrastructure software that needs continuous improvements in terms
of features and performances.
Through Open Sourcing
One$DB, we intend to enter the open source database market wherein some
players have validated the existence of such a growing market. We have
more features to be right out there and our licensing policy (LGPL) does
not impose any kind of restriction i.e. users can embed One$DB with commercial
applications also, without having to pay any fees to Daffodil. Apart from
the free support through forums and Live Chat, Daffodil also offers affordable
commercial support for the product under its One$/day support program.
Although Open Source
database arena has produced quality SQL database softwares, there is a
considerable gap between market demand and features offered. One$DB with
its impressive set of features can bridge that gap. As we added new features
time and again, we felt that such a feature-rich SQL database, fully backed
by a professional company, going Open Source, will be of immense benefit
to both Java and Database community. We hope that One$DB, being a pure
open source SQL Java database will accelerate the development of Java-based
applications and drive more innovation around Linux and Java through community
Being a footprint
(less than 3 MB), One$DB can be easily deployed and embedded in a variety
of Java-based applications. Strict adherence to industry standards like
J2EE certification, JDBC 3.0, and SQL 99 compliance is a significant feature
of One$DB open source database . More importantly, full compliance to
SQL 99 will ease any future application migration to other databases.
Apart from the Embedded edition, One$DB also has a Network edition to
facilitate data management in a networked environment. Further, One$DB
being a matured product and fully backed by Daffodil, the community can
make use of a plethora of resources like manuals, articles, white papers
and release notes already available for free. Commitment to industry standards,
coupled with the availability of Network as well as Embedded editions
with full documentation set is a big distinction from other players in
the Open Source arena.
