Subject Re: Object Databases..
Date Sat, 30 Jun 2007 19:17:08 GMT
Hi Martin,

None of the object databases that I know of are open source AL or  
BSD. Most are GPL (not even LGPL). But there are some key/value  
persistent stores that might be of interest.

I guess it depends on what you think an object database is, and what  
you want to use it for. Is there a fixed schema? Search capability?  
Relationships among stored instances?

I'm happy to think about the topic while doing chores, but don't have  
much spare cycles to actually do much more than talk. And while  
thinking about it is half the work, implementing it is another 90%  
and testing it is the third 90%. ;-)
