in thread OO concepts and relational databases

There are two reasons why I didn't address OODBMSes:
  1. MySQL, Oracle, SQLite, and PostgreSQL are all RDBMSes. As those are the most popular options mentioned here, I chose to discuss them. I actually haven't seen much, if any, discussion of OODBMSes on this (or any other) site I go to.
  2. I've never used one, so I don't have any experience to discuss them. I have, however, a lot of experience with Oracle and MySQL in a number of companies. :-)

You may be perfectly correct in your assertion of OODBMSes. I don't know. I'd certainly be interested in learning more, though ...

Then there are Damian modules.... *sigh* ... that's not about being less-lazy -- that's about being on some really good drugs -- you know, there is no spoon. - flyingmoose

I shouldn't have to say this, but any code, unless otherwise stated, is untested

    And you're perfectly right. For now OODBMSes are still more than ever small exotic things compared to mastodontic RDBMSes (commercial rules applies...).

    In fact, I always found RDBMSes complex and difficult stuff, even a bit archaic (the gap from sequential-indexed files is not so wide).

    Here's some interesting reference about OODBMSes:
