what are the chances of Lucent doing something like this for inferno so we can get quality persistance of objects? >a short description of what ObjectDesign (ODI) is doing with Sun and >their Java interface to their ORB >Sun chose ODI in 1992 to supply the ODB technology used in NEO, Sun's >ORB. Sun has built a Java interface to NEO called Java Joe. >Sun has built an ObjectStore adapter to Java Joe which they will be >releasing in source and demo form at ObjectWorld in late August. The >demo shows how you can use Java Joe to query an ObjectStore database >In June 1992, Object Design and Sun signed an agreement for Object >Design to supply an object database engine to Sun for incorporation >into a product line that was eventually shipped in production in >1995. The object database engine was called PSM-E, which stands for >Persistent Storage Manager - Engine. Sun's product was internally >named DOE (Distributed Objects Everywhere) until it's formal >introduction last year as NEO (Network Enterprise Objects) >NEO is Sun's object request broker. The PSM-E is a light weight engine >without the full functionality of ObjectStore and has a different API, >based on IDL. >Sun originally planned to ship NEO with every copy of Solaris, but >this has not eventuated. Every copy of NEO, however, does use >ObjectDesign technology for object storage. >Recently, Sun has agreed to integrate ObjectStore with Java Joe, >Sun's Java interface to their ORB. >Sun and ODI also announced they were the first Object Database >vendor to support JDBC, Sun's Java Database Connectivity Standard. >ODI were given the opportunity to write the spec for the direct Java >binding to object oriented databases. Object Design did write the spec >which has been approved by ODMG and JavaSoft as the standard interface >for databases.
