Hi.

I'm curious whether an object database like db4o
(http://developer.db4o.com) could be integrated in the Data Tools
Platform. They are already supporting Eclipse with:

a) an Eclipse plugin to browse stored objects (you can check it out in the
Java/Eclipse getting started video ->
http://developer.db4o.com/blogs/community/archive/2009/05/21 /second-getting-started-with-db4o-video-java.aspx)

b) a second Eclipse plugin to instrument objects to work with db4o
transparently
( http://developer.db4o.com/blogs/product_news/archive/2009/05 /18/automagically-enable-db4o-transparent-persistence-for-ja va-via-eclipse.aspx)

Could this be a start to integrate db4o into DTP or DTP is only targeted
at relational datastores? How about db4o as part of EclipseLink?

Best (thx)

Hi there...

Well, we're always looking for more databases to integrate with. Can't say I
know anything about db4o, but if it has a JDBC driver, we can most likely
connect to it or DTP can be adapted to work with it.

If you want to see a series of articles on integrating a different database
(SQLite) with DTP, you can check out these articles on my blog...

Hope that helps! We're always looking for community support for new
databases, so if you get something working and want to contribute it back,
we'd love to have it. Also, feel free to put up any questions you may have
and we'll do our best to answer them!

Thanks!
