SPHiveDB: A mixture of the Key/Value Store and the Relational Database.

The Key/Value Store becames more and more popular. When we use the Key/Value Store to store objects, we need to serialize/deserialize the objects as binary buffer. We have many ways to serialize/deserialize objects. A possible way is to use the Relational Database. Every value we store in the Key/Value Store is a SQLite instance. We can use the power of the Relational Database to manipulate the value. The SQL is very powerful for processing query request.
