Database Management for Smalltalk


Transparent Persistence

+ Transaction Processing…

Smalltalk is pure object-oriented programming for complex business and technical applications, but the benefits of this can be lost in the well-known ‘impedance mismatch’ with relational databases.

The VOSS virtual object storage system extends Instantiations Inc. Smalltalk VAST Platform with integrated database management, providing transparent multi-user access and transaction processing of persistent, versioned, Smalltalk objects directly accessible by normal programming, with efficient persistent Btree collection classes, including the multi-key/multi-value/key-set VirtualDictionarySet for aggregation and query-building.

  • Multi-process, multi-machine, transactional access to distributed objects
  • ACID transactions with two-phase commit, logging and rollforward crash recovery
  • Persist clustered complexes of any Smalltalk classes except block closures
  • Historical object versioning, MVRC repeatable read, MVCC concurrency control
  • Automatic object locking with transaction rollback & retry on deadlock time-out
  • Automatic change detection, no lock conflicts with sub-transactions, short read-locks
  • Concurrent Multi-key/multi-value/key-set Btree VirtualDictionarySet w/ query-building
  • Continuation Transactions manage alternative futures¬†for design or what-if
  • Long Continuation Transactions may be persisted prior to ultimate commit/rollback
  • Distributed copying, parented copying, identity-exchange, checkout, read-only¬†etc
  • Concurrent variable-rate incremental foreground & background garbage collection
  • The garbage collector will also trace and report references to selected objects
  • snapshot hot backup of the set of distributed virtual spaces
  • Terabyte 64-bit object id and addressing default
  • Dual Licensing - Open Source GPLv3 and/or Supported Commercial Licence
