I just made a “blind port” of OmniBase to Pharo6+ (migrated the old FFI to new UFFI).
New port is here:


OmniBase is Smalltalk efficient objects repository, BTree and filesystem based with full ACID features

and can be load like this:

Metacello new
repository: 'github://estebanlm/OmniBase/src';
baseline: 'OmniBase';

PLEASE note I’ve never used OmniBase and I don’t know if this port will work out of the box. But if it was working, it should continue working now (and this list can help to get you rolling).


ps: I always wanted to do a Voyage-OmniBase… maybe this is the moment? :P

I too used it in Dolphin and it was fine, But i don’t think it gets used much in Pharo and so has probably decayed, isn’t Voyage an object dB or Gemstone?

(Todd & everyone, a gentle reminder to try and leave personality opinions at the door , we’ve already had another thread that got overly heated unnecessarily. Our community is small and we need to avoid knife fights. The technical stuff is already hard enough)

 thanks for your answer Todd. I know omnibase from dolphin. Now I am starting a new Project and I want to use pharo. Would you recommend me another object database?

FWIW, I have used it before and I don't have anything good to say about the library or the individual who wrote it.

I'd look for something else.

Hi folks, does anyone know how to get OmniBase for Pharo 6?.  The Package on Pharo.org<http://pharo.org/> is for pharo 4, I tried to install them manually from the MCZ files, but I get a strange error in a closeHandle method. <apicall: Literal constant expected -> ulong 'CloseHandle' (long) module:'kernel32.dll'>
^self externalCallFailed.
I am using win 7.
