Embedded Database versus External RDBMS
Using the Embedded Database
Using an External RDBMS
When you install My webMethods Server, the installer asks whether you want My webMethods Server (and Task Engine) to write data to an embedded database or an external RDBMS. You must use an external RDBMS if you are going to:
*Install My webMethods Server in a production environment.
*Cluster My webMethods Servers.
*Use Business Console.
If none of the above apply, you can use the embedded database when you are installing My webMethods Server for the sole purpose of running the Broker Messaging user interface.
If you choose the embedded database during installation, you cannot later switch to write data to an external RDBMS.
