Apollo To Get An Embedded Database

I’ve been waiting for this one to be announced, and Mike Chambers just blogged itApollo will include an embedded SQLite engine which can be used for local database storage, and which will be invaluable to apps that need to support offline processing.

    Ben, will something be included within Apollo to allow for data sync between the embedded db and an online connection? For instance, if I write an Apollo application with an embedded db to handle inventory management, and have an e-commerce site that maintains a copy of the inventory db that automatically removes items from inventory as they are sold, do we have a way to sync the two datasources?

    Why would Scorpio go with Derby and Flex go with SQLite? From an operations, support and experience point of view, why wouldn’t Adobe pick one database?
    Just curious.

    Craig, I am sure that the fact that ColdFusion is written in Java (Derby is Java based, not C based) and Apollo is written in C (SQLite is written in C, not Java) has something to do with it.
