That would be an exiting topic if there was an OO data model. Unfortunately, that still does not exists. IMHO, relational theory does not contradict any OO concepts and it would be possible to build a truly relational (not SQL of course) database that would also be an OODB but current OO database trends (since the late 80s) are flawed implementations because they are not based on any data model.

Or do you mean to imply you are building an OODB that conforms to the relational data model? That would be really, really exiting but I am a skeptic. I think this will happen but it is too early. Maybe in another 10 years...
