Architectures That Use Object Database Products
This section provides a background on architectures that use object database products. First, an architecture for stand-alone applications is described. This also serves as a basis for the second architecture which shows how object databases can enhance access to existing data sources. This has sometimes been described as a "persistent cache" of data for C++ or Java applications. It can be particularly useful for enhancing the performance of middle-tier applications in websites and for using XML. For more information, see the related content below.
