    HashMap vs Berkely DB

    Hi folks,

    I am using a HashMap<String, String> to store lots of entries. For example, each entry will cost less 700 bytes so that storing 600,000 entries will take about 400,000 kilobytes memory, fair enough. But I wonder Berkel DB will use less memory and faster with this much of data. Any input will help!

    its hard to guess without any concreted data. the best course to take would be to profile both the hashmap and bdb solution and pick the one that performs best. let us know how it goes though
