Hello there, For an application I'm working on (implemented mostly in Python), I was looking for a good solution for our storage needs. First I was thinking about some tuple- or triple-store, but upon further reflection I decided yesterday that an object database would probably work much better. One of the first that came to mind was ZODB (the other I could think of was Durus, but it doesn't seem as interesting).
However, when I tried to find more information about it and to install it, I ran into several problems. One is that some of Google's first hits for "zodb" are pretty outdated; for example, I get  as hit number 2, and it lists ZODB 3.2 as the latest release (at te list lower on the page, it even shows 1.0 as the only release). It links to another wiki page, , that points to what seem like more recent pages at PyPI and LaunchPad, but this page altogether provides preciously little information (the Documentation link points to a page that seems to mostly have papers and presentation from 2000-2002). On the internet, there is some talk about the different storage providers, but it seems mostly very old. FileStorage seems to be the only "serious" Storage provider delivered with ZODB. Are there any other general-purpose Storage providers actively being used in the wild? How does their performance compare? FileStorage apparently needs to keep some index in memory; when does this start to be a problem? What's new in ZODB4? There is some talk about blobs, are they described somewhere? Thanks for any information you might give me, Manuzhai  http://www.zope.org/Products/StandaloneZODB  http://wiki.zope.org/ZODB/FrontPage _______________________________________________ For more information about ZODB, see the ZODB Wiki: http://www.zope.org/Wikis/ZODB/ ZODB-Dev mailing list - ZODB-Dev@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zodb-dev
