Thanks for the quick responses.  Stanley Zdonik responded that Observer
can be obtained by writing:

        Kathy Krause
        Brown U.
        Dept. of Computer Science
        P.O. Box 1910
        Providence, RI 02912

She will send a license agreement which needs to be filled out
and returned to her.


1. Looking for definition of OODB (an OODB manifesto)

Just what constitutes an OODB?  RDBMS have Codd's RMV2 to use as a
metric for relational compliance.  What do the developers of OODBMS
use to determine if their product is really an OODB?  What do OODBMS
customers look for when evaluating OODBMS to determine if the
product is really an OODB?

BTW - HELP!!  I have been trying to get a copy of the Object
Oriented Database Manifesto.  I have tried everywhere that I can
think of short of writing the publisher (and paying the $$$ for a
copy) and begging on the net....  If anyone can help me acquire a copy
of this document, I would be very grateful..
