Subject Re: Jackrabbit, the database
Date Tue, 21 Aug 2007 08:36:35 GMT

For me, the question is not really databases or not (databases need to
be supported, while native storage can be much faster).

My question is: should we support multiple connections in the
persistence manager?

If using multiple connections really does improve performance /
scalability of Jackrabbit, I think we should think about it (long
term, for NGP). Using multiple connections does not mean using
databases. Multiple connections can be supported with file based
persistence managers as well (or course the transaction isolation
level needs to be defined).

First we need proof that using multiple connections does help.

Some feedback was along the line 'Jackrabbit must use DataSources /
Pooled Connections because... it is better than using one
Connection!'. I like to understand why and in what cases it is better.
