Do you want to contribute to Jease? Writing documentation is a good place to get started and will help to get people becoming more familiar with Jease. Any contribution is appreciated.

Object Database

You can configure the central object database parameters in Jease/WEB-INF/web.xml.

Configure the database folder

The name of the database folder can be specified in two ways:

  • If the database name doesn't include a slash, the database folder will be created directly in user home (prefixed by "db4o" or "perst", see below).
  • If the database name includes a slash (java.io.File.separator), the value will be interpreted as path for the database folder. Please note: if a slash is present or not is determined by java.io.File.separator, so you'll need to specify paths with correct slashes according to your platform ("/" on Linux/Mac OS X, "\" on Windows).

Configuration for Linux / Mac OS X


Configuration for Windows


Please note: the specified folder contains all data, so if you want to make a backup of your CMS, simply backup the specified directory. That's it.

Configure the database engine

Jease supports the following open-source object-databases:

  • db4o (jfix.db4o.engine.PersistenceEngineDb4o)
  • Perst (jfix.db4o.engine.PersistenceEnginePerst)
  • ZooDB (jfix.db4o.engine.PersistenceEngineZoodb)

db4o is the default engine. If you want to use Perst as engine, you can configure this in WEB-INF/web.xml:


If you want to integrate another database with Jease, you can implement the interface for jfix.db4o.engine.PersistenceEngine. Please use existing implementations as guides.
