Jess can be used in both small and large programs, and scales very well (you have to write efficient rules, of course; the book Jess in Action tries to teach you how to do this.) Jess has been used in applications with millions of records.

As Ernest has pointed out elsewhere, Jess is fairly economical with resources and can run in small, resource-constrained, environments. The nature of a rule-engin component - specifying business rules separately from the code to process them - is fundamentally very scaleable. Using Jess with just a handful of rules can be useful, and more can be added as needed.
Whether the in-memory nature of Jess is particularly suitable fot "large scale database manipulation", I shall leave for Ernest to answer.
 
A lot of people cry when they cut onions. The trick is not to form an emotional bond. This tiny ad told me:
