BDB is a single-file key-value database. It's not a SQL or any other
transactional database, and it's fairly simple to program for.
Unfortunately I don't think there are any friendly utilities to inspect
the data. If you know any programming language (C, Python, Perl...),
it's almost trivial to write one.

See and the manual pages
linked from there.
