What is Oracle Java DB?

A relational database management system that's very clever and object-oriented

What is our primary use case?

Oracle Java DB is one of the databases we use, and we use quite a few databases. It's either Oracle or Microsoft SQL Database or MySQL. We've been doing it for many years, but all our clients work on different databases. They use non-transactional and non-relational databases. One of our clients also uses MongoDB. Oracle Java DB isn't used much as many of our clients use Microsoft SQL Server Database. We have a client in the healthcare space that is using it, and we use this for storing all the information of this space.

Pros and Cons

  • "It's very clever."
  • "It'll be better if Oracle Java supports open source technologies, like Node.js."

What other advice do I have?

This is a fairly stable language, and it's been in the market for several years. In fact, it's been around since about 1995, when the concept of object orientation started. People should use it because it's clever. On a scale from one to ten, I would give Oracle Java DB a nine.

Great for running queries, very stable and perfect for our invoicing needs

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for our invoicing needs in regards to sales. We also use it for customer information as well.

Pros and Cons

  • "There have been no issues in relation to stability. We've never really had do to any recoveries. It is very stable."

    What other advice do I have?

    We use the on-premises deployment model. I'd rate the solution ten out of ten. When we're interacting with the solution, it's usually other third-party software solutions that interact with Oracle DB. As far as our interaction, it's quite limited. We don't do much unless it's real queries. We use SQL, we use Oracle. There isn't much that we would need from the solution. We're getting the job done at the end of the day.

    Stable with good automation capabilities, but vendor lock-in is a problem

    What is our primary use case?

    We are a system integrator and Oracle Java DB is one of the products that we implement for our clients. The primary use cases are concurrency, patching, and automation.

    What is most valuable?

    The most valuable feature is automation.

    What needs improvement?

    There should be a software-defined Oracle DB, as well as a software-defined cloud management platform. The biggest lesson that I have learned from using Oracle products is vendor lock-in.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    This company has been using Oracle Java DB for the past 20 years.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    This is a stable product.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    This is not a highly-scalable solution.

    Enables us to automate our website and is easy for developers

    What is our primary use case?

    Our primary use case for this solution is to automate our website. 

    What is most valuable?

    It has a programming language so anything that we require for Selenium is all available there.

    What needs improvement?

    In terms of improvement, I'd like an automation tool that is lower priced. The core prices are very high. We have to train our employees in Java. 

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been using Oracle Java for seven years. 

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    We have ten users who use this solution.  We only use a limited scope of Java. The development team primarily uses it. 

    What other advice do I have?

    I would rate it an eight out of ten. Not a ten because it's difficult to learn. It's easier for…
