I have been using Torque and playing with OJB. Currently, I feel that OJB is a
little unstable; they are working towards 1.0 but are not quite there yet. If
you think that the Torque docs are somewhat lacking, then OJB is rather more so.

In the long run, however, I think that OJB has greater potential with its
persistence broker mechanism, different kinds of transaction management, and
different interfaces (OQL, JDO, ODMG OTM). Maybe next year I shall revisit my
decision to stick with Torque.

                               Unfortunately, most programmers like to
                               program. Some of them would rather
                               program than eat or bathe.
