Common Persistent Model Patterns for Performance and/or Scalability Optimization: Call for Submissions.
Here is a new project I would like to start for ODBMS.ORG: 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.
To help developers in their design task, ODBMS.ORG would like to report “common persistent model patterns for performance and/or scalability optimization.”
We therefore invite 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.
Moreover, ODBMS.ORG will give an Award for the most valuable pattern as voted by the ODBMS.ORG community.
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.
If the submission includes some actual software, you should *before* contact me to verify the modality of the submission.
Please send your submission by e-mail to: editor at odbms dot org
Deadline for submissions: May 29, 2009
Public Voting: between May 30- June 20, 2009
Awards for the pattern which receives the highest votes: June 25, 2009
