This is a rough rendering of a page from the old Prevayler wiki. Please see the new wiki for current documentation.


You can use any language for which you are able to find or build a serialization mechanism. In languages where you can directly access the system's memory and if the business objects are held in a specific memory segment, you can also write that segment out to the snapshot file instead of using serialization.

Are there domains that you would not recommend using prevayler for?

See WhenShouldINotUsePrevalence.

I believe the Zope Object Database (zODB) that Zope ( uses is, if not the same concept, very similar.
ZODB is a very nice implementation of an object database, but not a prevalence layer.
