VoidStar: Relational db as good as object DB? not currently

posted by kmacleod at 2002-01-29 23:10 (permalink)

kmacleod: Yes, hundreds of thousands of web sites all use relational databases, but to do so they all (almost to the last) do so by using SQL directly or wrapping hand written or schema generated code around it -- "ick!", I say!
kmacleod: Zope and Frontier take a different approach by natively binding the inherent structure of the database into the language.
kmacleod: It's said that .net's data store and C#/CLR are bound in a very similar way.
kmacleod: I disagree with Dave W. that hierarchy has anything in particular to do with it, except as a convenient default localized storage pattern.
kmacleod: A graph-structured database is far more analogous to the web, and more clearly represents the distributed nature of the web.
kmacleod: Aaron points at RDF here, and he may be right, but at this point there is no tight binding to a language and (I believe) current RDF research systems have too much chaos to their data presentation.
AaronSw: Well, I'm working on the binding bit, and data presentation is simply a matter of, well, presentation.
kmacleod: As I well know, from work on Orcard ;-)
kmacleod: er, "Orchard"
AaronSw: He means Orchard.
