We’re happy to announce that our embedded database ObjectBox now officially runs on all major desktop platforms. This enables Java-based desktop apps on Windows, macOS, and Linux to utilize ObjectBox’ simplicity and performance.

From the beginning, ObjectBox has been created to run on multiple platforms. While our primary release target was Android, internally we ran ObjectBox mostly on desktop machines. This minimized turnaround and running times, and thus increased developer productivity greatly. Next step will be iOS… stay tuned.

If you are developing Android apps, you can use the desktop version of ObjectBox to run local unit tests. This has already been available for Linux and Windows machines for a while, and was recently complemented with the macOS release of ObjectBox.

Not running Java? We’re also working on a public C++ API: Talk to us if you are interested in a private beta.
