Hi guys : Has anyone tried using DB4o, the popular Object oriented database ?

I gave it a shot and it was so easy it made me uncomfterble...

I wasnt quite sure "how" my data was stored, where it was being managed, etc...

I was looking for a somwehat more restrictive object oriented database, i.e. one that enforced at lease SOME of Codd's rules, such as primary key constraints, in a less transparent manner. Does one exist ?

I stay away from hibernate because it seems like basically a more difficult version of ibatis, you still have to build and maintain bulky, unreadable XML maps and manage semantic mappings.

I think the idea of Db4o is incredible, and makes life alot easier that hibernate or ibatis because ALL queries are gauranteed to have perfect syntax and be strongly typed since they are done using object api's and not hardcoded strings or mapping files.
