Sleepycat Software has provided MySQL with the Berkeley DB
transactional storage engine. This storage engine typically is
BDB for short.
tables may have a greater chance of surviving crashes and are also
operations on transactions.
Support for the
BDB storage engine is included
in MySQL source distributions, which come with a
BDB distribution that is patched to make it
work with MySQL. You cannot use an unpatched version of
BDB with MySQL.
BDB support will be removed
Note that, as of MySQL 5.1,
supported any longer.
