    BDB JE on Android as a spatial DB. Is it a good choice?

    921846
      I would like to use BDB JE for spatial database queries (text search for geo-objects). Is it a good choice?
      I had read a docu and understood that the BDB has a better productivity than standard SQLite for Android .
      There is no support for spatial indexes in BDB. Is it true?
      That means that someone must develop this type of indexes :) (It would be a good choice for my MA).

      Thanks in advance.

      Yaro.

          BDB JE has not special support for spacial queries and does not have a spacial index (R-tree). It only has a B-tree index. There are no plans to add an R-tree index. So to be honest, you would probably be better off to use a product that has a R-tree index. Also, BDB JE does not have built-in text search.

          By productivity I think you mean performance. You're probably referring to the BDB product (C-based product), not BDB JE. Please post questions about BDB to its forum:
