I've seen through the forums several questions regarding a way to replace db4o
(mainly so that it can be used in commercial applications). I saw at one point
you said that lucene may be a replacement. Is that also a db? or just the
search engine? How much would be involved to just use Lucene? or replace db40
with eclipselink/derby or something else with better license?
I would be willing to sponsor this change with a few hundred $$. What do you
http://www.rssowl.org/overview says RSSOwl
is using db4o (Database) and lucene (Search engine) as of 2.0
db4o is currently not easy to replace and there is no plans in the near future
to do it, its much embedded into the overall code I fear.
Whats the rationale behind your request btw. You can also drop me a mail if
Reasoning is simple: I don't like db40 commercial license :)
There are many other alternatives (apache cayenne, eclipselink, hibernate,
etc) that would be better suited licenses. i hope you would reconsider - again
I'm willing to sponsor.
If not I may take on the challenge myself (but would prefer not to).
Thanks for considering - you have done an amazing job with this - it really is
the best rss reader on the market.
