Berkeley DB is an Open Source embedded database system with a number
of key advantages over comparable systems. It is simple to use, supports
concurrent access by multiple users, and provides industrial-strength
transaction support, including surviving system and disk crashes. This
paper describes the design and technical features of Berkeley DB, the
distribution, and its license.
