POET 2.1, Cyclom-8Ys and more.
POET 2.1

POET 2.1, the Cross-Platform Object Database for C++ is now available on Linux both in a single-user “Personal Edition” and in a Client/Server “Professional Edition”. It features cross-platform support, not only at the source level, but also provides binary compatibility between objects on all supported platforms, including many Unix platforms, Novell, and Macintosh.

POET is provided as a set of C++ classes which provide a fully object-oriented system, including persistent classes.
