An architecture for a memory-resident, Parallel and Persistent ObjectSTore (PPOST) is suggested. Different object-oriented databases might be built on top of PPOST. The term memory-resident (or main memory based) means that the primary storage device is main memory. Persistence is guaranteed automatically by managing secondary and stable storage devices(More)
Even the more or less " canonical " , lower-level architecture of information systems needs to be revisited from time to time. Notions like persistence and transactions belong traditionally to the area of database management systems. There are, however, many applications, such as CAD, VLSI design or simulation, which need persistence and could take(More)
