JBoss comes with an embedded database Hypersonic, what are the advantages and disadvantages of using that ? How does the embedded database compare with MySQL. Can Hypersonic be used for a production database ?

Thanks

Hypersonic is not meant for production. It doesn't scale well with multiple users. You're much better off with MySQL, Postgres, Oracle.

MySQL would certainly be more robust. You could also easily deploy it on separate machines or setup a clustering server.

Which is what I am going to try and learn how to do.

If you just need a quick and dirty Db, I would go with the default one.

Is there any article or book that explains the pros and cons of the embedded DB ? Also are there any known limitations of mySQL ? Does hybernate work with Hypersonnic ?

Thanks

MySQL just came out with a new release - it looks like they now have stored procedures and decent transaction support. I'm sure MySQL has limitations, but I don't know where you'd find an article that covers this.
Maybe you could google for "Open Source Database" and find something that way.

Yes, Hypersonic will work with Hibernate.
