Store the objects.  That's the whole point of an object database - you 
don't have to be constantly converting back and forth to a "raw data" 
form.  Or, more accurately, the "raw data" form used by the database is 
flexible enough to capture (nearly) any object model you are using, and 
so the conversion can be done automatically.
