OrientDB - Pure Java NoSQL Datastore

I analysed all the popular ones but none fitted my requirements. I had one criteria for selecting a database: I must be able to code in Java. Most available systems were non-Java based which would be a significant issue for a one man project. Even if they had Java interface, the installation, setup, etc. were a tedious process. Having a database developed purely in Java has many advantages:

  1. Easy packaging with other applications
  2. Easy to install and run
  3. Can be embedded
  4. Can run in same or different VM
  5. Easy to debug
  6. Easy to test

After much searching, I came across OrientDB.

These are less storage requirements than programming and deployment requirements. Judging by the above points alone quite a few other databases would make the list.
