    What do you think it's better, use YAML or SQL to data storage in a bukkit plugin? Like permissions(groups, permissions, timed permissions), user informations(money, ip, uuid, nickname, language, ban) and ban history.

    Which one is better to data configuration/serialization?

    And to get the data which is faster?

    What are the PRO's and CON's of them?

    Do you have other way to data storage? Tell me.

    @CruzAPI Well, that is long term storage, if you do it right then you cache things.

    Permissions in YML
    User information in SQL.

    Pretty good comparison

    I personally use MongoDB. It's NoSQL and can be changed on the fly, and it's pretty fast.
