database performance

The backend unit tests provided a base on which we built more extensive database performance tests, covering many aspects of database performance using JDBC.

Part 0: Fair Setup

The setup is well documented so that these results can be reproduced.

Part 1: Java - Linux - Databases

This report compares many different aspects of databases on Linux via JDBC.
