Subject RE: [firebird-support] Difference from H2 and firebird
Author Svein Erling Tysvær
I got curious when you mentioned H2 (hadn't heard about it before), so I took a quick look at its home page. The first impression is that it is quite different from Firebird. The most important difference I noticed (from my viewpoint) is that they state that table level locks are a feature of H2, whereas for my Firebird use, table level locks would be a show stopper. H2 supports multi-version concurrency control (MVCC) as an additional feature (in Firebird, MVCC is fundamental), but they state it isn't fully tested yet and also mention a few drawbacks of their implementation.

* Reliability doubt for commercial porpouse

FireBird PRO

* Rock solid project
