Are in memory databases still supported

I’m a little confused about the status of in memory databases. It looks like the javadocs have the disk, memory, and createMemory methods on AdminConnection deprecated. Is that correct? I also noticed two references to the deprecated createMemory in the docs. I also noticed a commit to the examples with the comment “say no to in memory databases” that changes the calls to createMemory to the deprecated disk. Is that just preparing for in memory db’s to go away or should disk and memory not be deprecated?


Those methods are to be deprecated in 5.1, I believe because yes, in-memory databases are going away. For a while now we have been recommending their use only for testing.

Thanks, I just saw it in the release notes for RC1
