It may look like we're standing around drinking beer, but really we're hard at work thinking about our Redbook.

IDS has some key features that lend itself to embedability, for example a small footprint, stability, low administration needs, the ability to run unattended for long periods of time, scalable performance. IBM has a significant number of partners, ISV's and customers who embed IDS in their applications, and we're seeing increasing interest in learning more about it, including best practices and how others are embedding IDS.
It's always good to get comments and opinions from people with experience in embedding IDS.. what do you think are the strengths of IDS in the embedded database market? What should we improve?
