Whilst Oracle is certainly not OO currently, I know of companies
who have integrated AutoCAD with Oracle for process plant applications.
viz. use AutoCADas the visualisation tool and Oracle as the persistance
item, other applications are just bolted onto the pair of them.

Obviously ORACLE is available on most platforms.

I am unsure whether any commercial OODB have yet developed an
interface to AutoCAD. I certainly doubt if it works !!

Hope that helps.

1. request for info on OODBs

I recently saw a request for information on object-oriented databases
posted to this group, but there was no follow-up.  I'd like to prompt
some discussion in this area.

I have recently started looking at various OODBs.  Primarily, I am
interested in ObjectStore, Objectivity, and Versant.  Would people
share their good or bad experiences with these products and others?
Especially useful would be comments from people who are familiar
with more than one OODB.
