Oracle buys Sleepycat

Oracle today announced their acquisition of Sleepycat Software, the makers of Berkeley DB.  This follows their purchase of Innobase Oy, makers of InnoDB, last year.  It is rumoured that JBoss and Zend are next in their sights.  Along with their launch of Oracle Express Edition, this must be interesting news for the guys over at MySQL AB, which uses InnoDB and BDB as its two transactional engines.
