Apache Derby - Relational Database implemented in Java

  •        0

Apache Derby is an open source relational database implemented entirely in Java. It has a small footprint that makes it easy to embed in any Java-based application, but it also supports the more familiar client/server mode. It is based on the Java, JDBC, and SQL standards, making code developed more portable to standards-compliant databases.

MapDB - Embedded Database Engine

MapDB is an embedded database engine. It provides Maps and other collections backed by disk or memory storage. It offers excellent performance comparable to java collections, but is not limited by GC overhead. It is also a full database engine with storage backends, transactions, cache algorithms, expiration and many other options. MapDB provides concurrent Maps, Sets and Queues backed by disk storage or off-heap memory.
