The Object Database Language “Galileo” – 25 years later.
By Renzo Orsini
February 10, 2010 Abstract: Sometimes a look at the past can be useful to put in the right perspective a hot new discussion. So I thought, when Roberto Zicari, editor of ODBMS.ORG, asked me a brief note about our work on Galileo object database language in light of the discussion on the new wave of “data stores”, such as “document stores” and “NoSql databases”. So, to follow Roberto’s suggestions, I will present a brief history of the project, and then I will try to draw some considerations on this discussion based on my experience.
