"Fast & Lightweight open-source database for developers"

What do you like best?

HyperSQL is one of the most lightweight database programs available across the internet. It provides users with great flexibility in the creation of SQL queries and handling and managing the databases.

Few of the prominent features preferred by myself are as follows:

1. Completely multi-threaded that provides the users an amazing speed of working and query execution.

2. Easy configuration of databases along with handling and management.

3. Ability to manage the executing statements by canceling the long-running queries.

4. Support for transaction management through 2PL and MVCC.

What do you dislike?

There is little standard compliance that leads to low portability of code. The query becomes slow as the database grows and multiple tables are opened up in different windows thus it is good for small and medium-sized databases.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely recommend it to all fellow software engineers and managers who are on the verge of starting up the whole project and requires easy to use and configure programmable DB that is written in Java and supports the features of multi-threading and concurrency management.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Simplifies the process of installation and configuration of databases for beginners providing easy to use interface. Amazingly fast for small and medium-sized projects providing easy recovery and backup options.

"Great lightweight SQL engine"

What do you like best?

HyperSQL is a very good small SQL engine that I use for in house tool developments. It has a small foot print, to make the java executable manageable. HSQL database is generally much faster in a desktop environment when compared to other standard database engines.

What do you dislike?

Error reporting needs to be improved for this database. It does not show the exact text which is posing problems. User needs to search the code and find out where an exception is coming from instead of actually using the error text to find it out.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Best database engine for small scale projects. Beginners can use this engine for self implemented projects without overhead installations.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Extremely useful for small data projects. Easy to install and use

"Lightweight, ideal for small scale applications"

What do you like best?

Setup is instantaneous and is lightweight. I like the operation modes of the database and would prefer the file based mode in case you need persistent storage. In case of temporary storage, use 'in memory' mode. Useful to bundle this database with the product and provide it to users that do not have any database installed.

What do you dislike?

Not suitable for large amounts of data. It is advisable to use databases such as PostgreSQL and MySQL..

Recommendations to others considering the product

Lightweight and easy to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Development of an automation framework within the organization, comprising of multiple components that connect to a common database. Using HyperSQL, the end-user need not have a pre-installed database, making the product setup quite simple.
