InfinityDB Database Engine Programming Guide

InfinityDB is a persistent data store for embedded Java applications. It uses a patented algorithm (US Pat. 5,283,894) to provide features and performance not available in other embedded data storage systems. It is not a relational DBMS, and does not provide SQL or JDBC. However, it can easily represent and manipulate not only relational data but also a wide range of non-tabular or custom structures, such as text indexes, sets, Binary or Character Large Objects, an 'Entity-Attribute-Value' model, trees and much more.
