New Cook Paper on Transparent Persistence.

Also, ODBMS.ORG published a new paper by Ben Wiedermann, Ali Ibrahim, and William R. Cook on Interprocedural Query Extraction for Transparent Persistence(PDF). Transparent Persistence promises to integrate programming languages and databases by allowing programs to access persistent data with the same ease as non-persistent data. The work is focused on programs written in the current version of Java, without languages changes. However, the techniques developed by Cook and his colleagues may also be of value in conjunction with object-oriented languages extended with high-level query syntax.

Designed by Prof. Roberto Zicari of Frankfurt University, the program’s goal is to promote and further the use of object databases – by offering free resources for students, faculty and researchers at universities and research centers, as well as for JAVA and .NET developers in the commercial and the open source world. Content is provided by a panel of internationally recognized experts, who share research articles and teaching materials with the community via the organization’s Web portal.
