Leading Industry Analyst Recognizes db4objects as Representative Vendor in OODBMS space

Imagedb4o Listed in Both Embedded and Object Oriented DBMS Categories in Annual Review of Worldwide Software Market

db4objects (, creator of the leading open source object database, was highlighted in IDC’s Software Taxonomy report for 2007, the market research firm’s view of the worldwide software marketplace. db4objects’ db4o open source object database was identified as one of few representative examples of embedded database management systems (DBMS) and object-oriented database management systems.

IDC’s Software Taxonomy report breaks the packaged software market into 79 specific market groups with three to six representative software products in each category, within three segments: applications, application development and deployment (AD&D) software, and system infrastructure software. The company uses this continually updated list of representative software products to calculate such metrics as current and projected market segments’ revenue and growth.

"This report defines the breadth and depth of our global software marketplace, and the inclusion of db4objects marks a well-deserved recognition of the company’s role in the object-oriented and embedded database marketplaces," said Miko Matsumura, a well-known technology advisor, speaker and entrepreneur. "With the world’s largest developer community of its kind, db4objects is clearly helping to define the DBMS marketplace."

The db4object developer community has drawn more than 40,000 registered Java and .NET developers. db4o offers the ultimate persistence solution to store objects of any complexity natively and efficiently with only a single line of code.

"Until now, mismatching persistence solutions that require conversion or mapping have confounded Java and .NET developers by lengthening development cycles, limiting data models and restricting their ability to adapt those models over time," said Bob Pasker, Java luminary and technology advisor on the db4o board of directors. "db4o allows developers to leverage the full benefit of the Object Oriented paradigm by offering easy creation and querying using native Java or .NET, persisting the exact objects with a single line of code, allowing developers to modify the object model over time as requirements evolve, with no special action or overhead."
