The SAP's database SapDB, was rebranded to MaxDB and then donated to MySQL. MaxDB is really great, enterprise scale, but easy to install and manage, database even Oracle compatible. However, it seems like MaxDB moved back to SAP in October last year (2007) - which is potentially bad news for Sun. I used MaxDB/SAPDB in several projects - it was really great. Now the question, is MaxDB part of Sun's deal, or not?
