Glasgow Caledonian University , Glasgow, GB

The unique design of db4o's native object database engine makes it the ideal choice to be embedded in equipment and devices, in packaged software running on mobile or desktop platforms, or in real-time control systems - in short: in all Java and .NET environments, where no database administrator (DBA) is present. db4o is used by some of the world's most innovative companies, including Ricoh, Boeing, BMW, Bosch, Seagate, and Intel.

Jim Paterson describes the key features of db4o, and shows how to save objects in the database, use the db4o query mechanisms, control transactions and object activation, refactor databases, replicate data to a relational database and use db4o in a web app. You will also find out about extensive the developer resources provided by the db4o community.

Jim is a Lecturer in the School of Engineering and Computing at Glasgow Caledonian University. He is an author of "The Definitive Guide to db4o", the first book to be published about db4o, and has written articles for the onJava and ASP Today websites. He has a particular interest in teaching software development. He has a PhD in Physics, and worked previously as a research physicist and as a software engineer.
