ObjStore is a Perl extension for ObjectStore OODBMS.
Like perl? Sick of SQL? Ready to try something new? This extension implements something like a relational database management system, except that s/SQL/Perl/ig.
ObjectStore is the market leader in object-oriented databases http://www.odi.com (NASDAQ: ODIS). They use a unique Cache-Forward Architecture to make persistent data available in literally the most efficient manner possible.
Prior to this joining of forces
ObjectStore was too radical a design decision for many applications
Perl5 did not have a simple way of storing complex data persistently
Now there is an easy way to build database applications (especially if you are concerned about preserving your ideals of encapsulation).
