A database engine for storing object into files Maintained by:email@example.com Port Added: 21 Dec 2005 04:14:34 License: not specified in port
db4o is designed to provide a full-featured, embeddable database engine
for equipment, mobile, desktop, and server platforms in object-oriented
environments. Where relational databases fall short in providing zero
administration, small footprint, high performance, smooth synchronisation,
and easy refactorability, db4o is the answer. Native to Java and .NET,
db4o's single programming library (.jar /.dll) easily integrates into the
application and performs highly reliable and scalable persistence tasks with
just one single line of code, no matter how complex object structures may
Berkeley DB versions before and excluding 4.8 have been marked deprecated.
New port installations should be based on Berkeley DB 5 or 6.
Note that Oracle Berkeley DB 6 is under the more restrictive Affero GPL v3
license, be sure to review if using that fits your requirements.
You can add WITH_BDB_VER=5 or WITH_BDB_VER=6 to /etc/make.conf to have all
applications that get rebuilt use Oracle Berkeley DB 5 or 6, respectively.
DO NOT FORCE DELETE older BerkeleyDB packages, that breaks the upgrade
tools. Instead, first rebuild the ports that depend on it, then
remove the old Berkeley DB versions.
Berkeley DB ports should be able to build/install with an older and a
newer version version both installed if WITH_BDB_VER is set. If a
port then grabs the old Berkeley DB version, that is an issue with the
port that requires Berkeley DB, and should be reported to the
