Hi Aaron,

    Cloudscape has a pretty long history and good reputation.  I used it in
my JDBC tutorial nearly five years ago, well before IBM purchased the
company.  The question is, where does it make the most sense to use it?

    IMO, it would be overkill, take more memory, etc. to use it ( or any
other database I can think of ) *only* for the purposes you mention below.
OTOH, when you are using a database anyway, that usage would make a lot of
sense.  There are some similarities ( although more general ) in using a
database, rather than a file-based ResourceBundle, for I18N.
