"H2 (Hypersonic 2) is a relational database management system based on Java and supports a subset of the SQL standard. Although it also supports using the PostgreSQL ODBC driver by acting like a PostgreSQL server, its main programming APIs are SQL and JDBC. H2 can run in the client-server mode or can be embedded in Java applications. It runs fast and has a very small footprint having only around 1 MB jar file size. With H2, users can create both in-memory tables, as well as disk-based tables. Its security features include role-based access rights and encryption of the password using SHA-256 and data using the AES or the Tiny Encryption Algorithm, XTEA. It provides protection against SQL injection by enforcing the use of parameterized statements. H2 offers embedded web server with a browser-based console application. It also has command line tools to start and stop a server and for backing up and restoring databases. "
