Shipping MongoDB with our project


I am interested in deploying MongoDB on target workstations for our software (possible licence issues and best practices)

I am working on a goverment funded project for an educational facility. We are planning to ship some kind of installer that sets up the software and its dependencies on the target workstations.

Would it be possible to distribute some kind of minimal MongoDB-backend with our software. I don’t see any problem in setting up the base dataset, once there is some kind of mongodb server installed. I do worry about licence issues and I wonder what would be the best practice to provide the users of our software with a lean and unobstusive db backend.

I admit that I did not have much time to search the documention and this forum for answers to my question. If this topic is already covered, please provide a link.

Best regards
