This paper presents the identification of a new programming language concept and reports our initial investigations of its utility. The concept is to identify persistence as an orthogonal property of data, independent of data type and the way in which data is manipulated. This is expressed by the principle that all data objects, independent of their data type, should have the same rights to persistence or transience. We expect to achieve persistent independent programming, so that the same code… CONTINUE READING
