No

The JDBM should be deprecated in favour of a
lightweight JDBC provider such as hsqldb, as:
. is unreliable in that JVM or machine crashes can
result in data corruption
. we have to implement persistency twice
. it makes data base migration more complex
. it doesn't scale
. will make deployment of XA support more difficult

It can be removed once we have provided a tool to
migrate databases.

    JDBM has been removed for 0.7.7, replaced by Derby.
    There is no support to migrate an old JDBM database, but none
    has been requested by users.
