Hi, I've noticed that with this ALPHA release also some DB2 scripts are included.

This really catches my attention because I don't see you can just change NoSQL storage with a relational one?

So what's the purpose of those scripts?
(I'm new to your product as you can see)

Hi Troya,

These DB2 scripts we use internally for creating database for registry. We are using registry for storing some resources, properties and user management details required for BAM. So these scripts are use for different purpose. As NoSQL storage we are using Cassandra and we use it for storing events coming to BAM and retrieving those events later for analyzing.

Thanks Kasun for your answer! It was very clarifying.

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner; Blogger doesn't seem to notify about blog responses.

Are you planning to release a new Alpha version before the 2.0.0 release?

Cheers
