Sun Picks Berkeley DB for Mad Hatter

By Deane Barker on September 18, 2003

Sun Embraces Open-Source Database: The only experience that I have with Berkeley DB is thought Movable Type, which uses it as its default data storage system. Odd that suddenly they would get a big contract with Sun. Good for them.

“Sleepycat Software Inc. will announce on Wednesday that Sun, of Palo Alto, Calif., has chosen Sleepycat’s Berkeley DB database as the embedded database within its software line. The database is incorporated in key components of the Sun Java Enterprise System, formerly known as Project Orion, and the Sun Java Enterprise Desktop System, formerly known as Project Mad Hatter, both launched on Tuesday.”
