The database manager is configured with the following properties in dspace.cfg:


The JDBC URL to use for accessing the database. This should not point to a connection pool, since DSpace already implements a connection pool.


JDBC driver class name. Since presently, DSpace uses PostgreSQL-specific features, this should be org.postgresql.Driver.


Username to use when accessing the database.


Corresponding password ot use when accessing the database.

Custom RDBMS tables, colums or views


The BitstreamStorageManager provides low-level access to bitstreams stored in the system. In general, it should not be used directly; instead, use the Bitstream object in the content management API since that encapsulated encapsulates authorization and other metadata to do with a bitstream that are not maintained by the BitstreamStorageManager.
