Common Persistent Model Patterns for Performance and/or Scalability Optimization: Call for Submissions.

ODBMS.ORG, a vendor-independent non-profit group of high-profile software experts lead by Prof. Roberto Zicari, today announced the opening of a call for submissions for Common Persistent Model Patterns for Performance and/or Scalability Optimization.

ODBMS.ORG invites both vendors and Application architects, Enterprise architects, Developers who use databases to submit implementation techniques (database design patterns) which are generally useful for all adopters.

The best submissions will be published in a new series of reports in ODBMS.ORG. All submissions will be published under free software licenses.

“It is common practice that some database designers treat an Object Database (ODB) like a Relational Database (RDB). That is they are very query intensive rather than model intensive in their design. Some designers start with a “relational” model, and then adjust it to a model that is more “ODB-oriented”, or closer to their problem domain, in order to get better results. This task is difficult. ” says Roberto V. Zicari, Editor of ODBMS.ORG

To help developers in their design task, ODBMS.ORG will report “common persistent model patterns for performance and/or scalability optimization”.
Moreover, ODBMS.ORG will give an Award for the most valuable pattern as voted by the ODBMS.ORG community.

-Submission modalities: Submissions should be sent as reports in .pdf only. Submissions will be considered only if indicating the name of the auhor(s) (or team), affiliation, complete address, and e-mail.
