Investigated using persistent object technology in building large-scale software development environments. In time, became more about developing persistent object technology; broadened scope to provide support for all Java applications that manage long-lived, large-scale, complex, shared data.
Describes design, implementation of new scalable, high performance implementation of orthogonal persistence for Java platform (OPJ). Based on Sun Microsystems Labs Virtual Machine for Research (ResearchVM); features: optimizing Just-In-Time compiler, exact generational garbage collection, fast thread synchronization.
Eumel and successor L3, OSs made by GMD, have been used for 13 and 4 years respectively, for production in business, education. Over 2000 Eumel, 500 L3 have shipped since 1979, 1988. Both rely on persistence, with fault-surviving. Description, links. [ResearchIndex, CiteSeer]
