Looks like a good, well documented benchmark. Was well worth the read. 
Probably even more if you're more into Java than I am.

What's surprising me is, that PostgreSQL often was 'only marginally 
slower' compared to MySQL. First, I thought: wow, MySQL must have 
improved. But later on, I've read that they tested the MyISAM storage 
engine. Thus, I'm surprised that

  a) they perform only marginally better, and

  b) that the results are so close and similar.

I can only conclude, that PostgreSQL does a very well job in keeping the 
costs of consistency very low. ;-)

Regards

Markus
