|I know this is offtopic, but it must be quite common to use
a database with 
|Cocoon, so I thought people would be interested in this news:
|
|I just went to http://instantdb.co.uk/ today to routinely read
the manual, 
|and was redirected to this:
|
|http://instantdb.enhydra.org/
|
|InstantDB has been bought by Lutris (sponsors of Enhydra) and
they are 
|promising to make it open source. As far as I know it will be
the world's 
|only open source, pure Java, production-quality (i.e. not alpha
or beta) 
|RDBMS publicly available. This is excellent news! The license
will be an 
|MPL-style-license:
|
|http://instantdb.enhydra.org/software/license/index.html
|
|so as far as I can see (IANAL) it will even allow certain kinds
of 
|proprietary derived works (like the Apache Software Foundation
license, 
|unlike the GPL).
|
|Oracle won't be trembling in their boots _just_ yet - InstantDB
just isn't 
|in the same class. Not yet, anyway... but who knows what the
future might 
|hold? ;)
