No SQL ?
Thank you all for a wonderful semester. Here is a summary, in chronological order, of our recorded lectures. You can also view the entire playlist on youtube. Course Introduction

However, it has one notable limitation: total RAM use depends linearly (though via a small constant) on the total number of objects stored.

BabuDB is an embedded non-relational database system. Its lean and simple design allows it to persistently store large amounts of key-value pairs without the overhead and complexity of similar approaches such as BerkeleyDB.
Banana DB Banana DB is a self-contained key/value pair database implemented in Java.
