You don't need Java running.  There's a C API to input data if you 
wanted, or you can use the MySQL interface or you can just upload to the 
HTTP server.  However, I'd say it's more suited to relatively small 
files, and I don't think if you're only serving a few thousand that you 
wouldn't benefit from it.
