Just to add another view...
<< Once you have some even small cross table relationships, and you have not
support and roll-backs, you are dead. >>
I think that depends on your needs, how you architect a system, and how you
use the tools available. I built a medium size system that dealt with
complex objects and we used a small ISAM database which allowed us to
persist them more easily than using an RDBMS. We had to account for the
and protection mechanisms to fit our needs, but it was a
much better solution for us, given that we were dealing with a small number
of large objects. Many relationships were implicit due to the object
hierarchy. We accomplished our goals with semaphores and had very few
even though we didn't have explicit transaction support built in
to our system.
