KVLite is a simplified version of Oracle NoSQL Database. It provides a single-node store that is not replicated. It runs in a single process without requiring any administrative interface. You configure, start, and stop KVLite using a command line interface.

KVLite is intended for use by application developers who need to unit test their Oracle NoSQL Database application. It is not intended for production deployment, or for performance measurements.

KVLite is installed when you install KVStore. It is available in the kvstore.jar file in the lib directory of your Oracle NoSQL Database distribution.

Note that KVLite cannot be configured as a secure store.
