>> How many times were you hit by a database corruption and couldn't recover any data at all?
never! I have never not been able to recover data. I use H2 on a 24/7 sever system, and never had a corruption for years. However, I do have a solid backup strategy in place so I am not too concerned if the DB gets corrupted: no one will lose life or job. >>How many releases of H2 were tagged as stable and not as alpha/beta? I think most databases have the same alpha/beta/stable release cycle. >>Not matter how much I personally love using H2 for personal or professional projects, these 2 questions above always pop up in the mind of my team members. To them robustness is an issue with H2. I agree. Luckily I don't have people breathing down my neck, but I think it would be hard to justify using H2 when it is not seen as being an "enterprise" solution. >>And it's the same with us, fervent users: we always look forward to the next release of H2, it's hard for us to tell which specific release was good enough in terms of speed and stability. I tend to agree, but I am using an older 1.3x stable version and have not upgraded. Why? because it works and I don't want to risk it with a newer version. If it works, don't change it (or at least for my situation. -Adam On Wednesday, March 7, 2018 at 2:46:05 AM UTC-5, Christian MICHON wrote: > > How many times were you hit by a database corruption and couldn't recover > any data at all? > How many releases of H2 were tagged as stable and not as alpha/beta? > > Not matter how much I personally love using H2 for personal or > professional projects, these 2 questions above always pop up in the mind of > my team members.
