Disk based HashMap

Does Java have (or is there a library available) that allows me to have a disk based HashMap? It doesn't need to be atomic or anything, but it will be accessed via multiple threads and shouldn't crash if two are accessing the same element at the same time.

Anyone know of anything?


Either properties files or Berkeley DB might be what you're looking for. The java.util.Properties itself implements java.util.Map and provides methods to load from and store to a file. The Berkeley DB is often been recommended as a lightweight key-value pair datastore.
