OODB Product Evaluation

OODB Product Evaluation

Post by Roy Feldm » Fri, 15 Nov 1991 06:49:03

I am starting a evaluation of commercial OO Databases and I would like
to hear from people who have or are in the process of doing similar
work.  If you are actually using a commercial OODB then I
would especially like to hear from you.  There are a number of
questions I have, among them are:

1) Why have you decided to (or to not) use OODB technology in your
   project? Why isn't a RDBMS a satisfactory tool for your particular

2) What other OO tools or languages are you using or planning to use
   with an OODB?

3) If you have chosen a particular OODB, why? What other OODB's did
   you look at and how did they compare?

4) What was your selection criteria? In particular, I am
   interested in what your requirements were in the following areas:

   a) Performance (how many users, maximum time for transaction, etc.)
   b) Concurrency (transactions, what type, how much support)
   c) Reliability (what is your definition of reliability,
                  how fail-safe must your recovery be, if any)

5)  If you are using a OODB, is it meeting your expectations?

If you are interested in what I find, then post me and I will either
contact you directly or publish a summary in comp.databases.

Thanks in advance

1. OODB binding evaluation

We're two students from Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg,
Sweden, writing our thesis in Computer Science. We're about to evaluate
an Ada95 binding to the OODB EasyDB from BaseOpen Systems. Does anyone
know of any other binding evaluation made, or have ideas on good
There also doesn't seem to be an aggreed on standard for what a OODB is
supposed to look like.

All ideas and comments appreciated.
