Perst Design Principles

 

Perst’s goal is to provide developers in Java and C# with a convenient and powerful mechanism to deal with large volumes of data. Perst’s design principles include the following:

  • Persistent objects should be accessed in almost the same way as transient objects (transparent persistence)
  • A database engine should be able to efficiently manage much more data than can fit in main memory
  • No specialized preprocessors, enhancers, compilers, virtual machines or other tools should be required to use the database or develop applications with it.

Perst’s exceptional ‘transparent persistence’ simplifies working with Java objects.
