ODBMS.ORG, the Internet’s most up-to-date educational and research portal on object database technology, today announced that its expertWilliam R. Cook will chair a panel on “Objects and Databases – State of the Union” at the OOPSLA 2006 conference in Portland, OR (USA).

The panelists are:

  • Patrick Linskey, BEA
  • Erik Meijer, Microsoft

  • Craig Russell, Sun Microsystems

All panelists have provided a mission statement which is available for free download as PDF, together with the panel’s abstract.

Being the first high profile panel related to object database technology for many years, the event underlines the growing importance of solutions to handle the object-relational mismatch. It helps software managers and developers to understand, what role object databases play in today’s OO programming environments and how key players in the industry think about objects and databases.

ODBMS.ORG, whose experts and sponsors have helped to pull the panel together, will cover the event by publishing a podcast and transcripts of the discussion for reference in the Internet.

The panel takes place on Tuesday, October 24, 2006 from 10:30am to 12:00pm. Further event information and registration here.
