objects and a new paper by ODBMS.ORG panel member
Today, 6 additional user reports (25-30/08) have been published, from the following
The complete initial series of user reports is available for
New Cook Paper on Transparent Persistence.
Also, ODBMS.ORG published a new paper by Ben Wiedermann, Ali Ibrahim, and
William R. Cook on Interprocedural Query Extraction for Transparent Persistence(PDF).
Transparent Persistence promises to integrate programming languages and databases
by allowing programs to access persistent data with the same ease as non-persistent
data. The work is focused on programs written in the current version of Java, without
languages changes. However, the techniques developed by Cook and his colleagues
may also be of value in conjunction with object-oriented languages extended with
high-level query syntax.
ODBMS.ORG (www.odbms.org) is a vendor-independent, not-for-profit educational program
on object database technology and the integration between object-oriented programming
and databases. Designed by Prof. Roberto Zicari of Frankfurt University, the program's
goal is to promote and further the use of object databases - by offering free resources
for students, faculty and researchers at universities and research centers, as well
as for JAVA and .NET developers in the commercial and the open source world. Content
is provided by a panel of internationally recognized experts, who share research
articles and teaching materials with the community via the organization's Web portal.
