Oracle Mobile Server and Oracle Berkeley DB

September 15th, 2010 · 3 Comments

Just to clear some things up.  Yes, Oracle has put Oracle Lite in maintenance mode… or at least it will be by the end of November 2010.  Oracle has replaced Oracle Lite with Oracle Berkeley DB.  Here is some information on BDB:

  • Written in C
  • Software Library
  • Key/value API
  • SQL API by incorporating SQLite
  • C++, Java/JNI, C#, Python, Perl, …
  • Java Direct Persistence Layer (DPL) API
  • Java Collections API
  • Replication for High Availability

What remains the exact same is the Oracle Mobile Server!  The Mobile Server will be providing data synchronization, data subsetting, application provisioning, and device management… these things have all been around for some time and are continuing to grow and be enhanced.  Oracle is also introduced  JDeveloper integration into the Mobile Server as well as ADF Mobile Client.  In short, Oracle wants to be able to offer a full end-to-end solutions.  From Database, Fusion middleware, ERP, and mobile applications, the moves in the last year are really pointing to that direction.

ADF Mobile Client comes with the latest download of JDeveloper.  Once installed, go to Help -> Check for Updates to download the ADF Mobile Client extension.

    Hi Greg,

    About a year ago, we had discussed adding PL/SQL support to Oracle Lite using Metatranz PL/SQL compiler suite. Interestingly, when BDB added the SQLite API, Metatranz’s existing PL/SQL compiler product for SQLite called ‘StepSqlite’ instantly became compatible and usable with BDB.

    In fact, official Oracle BDB FAQ endorsed StepSqlite by linking to Metatranz StepSqlite website in answer to question “Does Berkeley DB Support PL/SQL?”

    For those who missed PL/SQL support in Oracle Lite, they now have PL/SQL available in Berkeley DB through Metatranz StepSqlite.
