Database Support

Categories of databases

We have two categories of databases:

  • XML: eXist
  • Relational: Oracle, MySQL, SQL Server, DB2

Since Orbeon Forms 4.4, the implementation of relational support is common to all databases. There used to be separate implementation for each relational database.

Third-party implementations

A third-party MarkLogic persistence layer for Orbeon Form Runner is available. As of 2015-03-02, this does not support versioning and owner/group-based permissions. Also please note that this is currently not officially supported by Orbeon.
