GDL2: the GNUstep Database Library
As you have seen in this article, GDL2 provides a complete framework to develop database-oriented applications on GNUstep. Porting GDL2 applications to Mac OS X also is entirely possible. Mac OS X binary packages of GDL2, containing the PostgreSQL adaptor, are available directly from the GNUstep FTP server.
Furthermore, a lot of work recently has been done to develop a complete clone of EOModeler, which eases the creation of EOModel. We soon might no longer need to create the model programmatically or write the plist files manually. In addition, PostgreSQL is not the only supported database for GDL2; support for MySQL also is being developed. Adaptors also can be developed easily for other databases, flat files, LDAP or any kind of data feed that would map elegantly to enterprise objects.
EOF is an interesting framework for developing database-oriented applications. Late incarnations of EOF were bundled with WebObjects, a complete framework for creating dynamic Web-based applications. The GNUstep Project offers a free implementation of WebObjects, named GNUstepWeb. Mixing this technology with EOF sure is a winning combination, one that we hopefully will cover in an upcoming article.

Free Webinar: Hadoop
How to Build an Optimal Hadoop Cluster to Store and Maintain Unlimited Amounts of Data Using Microservers
Realizing the promise of Apache® Hadoop® requires the effective deployment of compute, memory, storage and networking to achieve optimal results. With its flexibility and multitude of options, it is easy to over or under provision the server infrastructure, resulting in poor performance and high TCO. Join us for an in depth, technical discussion with industry experts from leading Hadoop and server companies who will provide insights into the key considerations for designing and deploying an optimal Hadoop cluster.
Some of key questions to be discussed are:
- What is the “typical” Hadoop cluster and what should be installed on the different machine types?
- Why should you consider the typical workload patterns when making your hardware decisions?
- Are all microservers created equal for Hadoop deployments?
- How do I plan for expansion if I require more compute, memory, storage or networking?
