    What's a suitable open source database for JBoss?

    dswearingen Newbie

      I'm part of a team that has some J2EE experience (WebSphere) but is new to JBoss. We need to start learning the platform soon, but it may be a few weeks until we get a license for SQL Server or Oracle, the ultimate rdbms platform for our project.

      In the mean time, we'd like to install an open source database so we can get started on learning the system. We don't expect to have any vendor-specific database requirements; that is, we hope in a few weeks to be able to drop in SQL Server or Oracle after having done some initial development under MySQL or Postrgresql or whatever.

      So, my question is: will MySQL or Postgres play nice with CMP and other best practices in implementing the EIS tier?

      Thanks.
