    HSQLDB in production

    Ian Hunter Newbie

      Hi Folks,

      We are starting a project in JBoss and we have a debate as to whether to use MySQL or HSQLDB in production. The timescale for deployment is tight

      Can anybody give practical experience and/or facts to fuel this debate.

      The basic argument is....

      Pro Mysql: Good solid performant database with scalability in mind.
      Con Mysql: We pay a development time penalty in terms of deployment

      Pro HSQLDB: Ready built into JBoss, nothing to do for deployment
      Con HSQLDB: ????????

      [BTW The real issue is not actually whether we use MySQL, but can we get away without using it for the first version, and switch over in a later version]

      Many Thanks for any input

      Ian Hunter
