Hi, that's correct.

Correct, too. IIRC it was Petr who mentioned this some time ago. I read the whitepaper but not more. My idea will use some more ideas and combine them into one framework. What else do I want to use: 1. Name / Value pair idea for record-layout. Much the idea of LDAP not columns in a database. Using templates for business-objects that can be exteneded etc. 2. Using the nakedobject idea for functions that can be applied to the data-objects, relations. I haven't solved all problems yet but up to now it seems to work fine.

Right. I have done the data-persistence with Rebol too (at the moment) but I'm currently checking to implement a DLL that handles the assocciative datamodel. With this is would be possible to handle thousands of nodes and links.

Thanks, and yes that's exactly what I want to do.

No problem, I just followed the open-source rule: release early, release often. So I hope that the basic "how-to's" are ramping up and that most of you make it to have a first look at it. Further version will become more stable, convinient etc. Robert
