If you are intent on an RDB backend - then I would guess that Glorp, ROE
and Tantalus are those to check out.

If you have an app that can work within a "document"-like model (the
user "snapshots" a model, and that model is mainly modified only by one
user) then ImageSegments are quite nice. Really fast in loading from
disk and pretty fast in doing a snapshot to disk (except for an overhead
similar to a full gc). But honestly - if you think ImageSegments would
work then you can also go "all the way" to Magma:

If you want something that is really really simple and transparent then
IMHO Magma is the way to go. I am building a quite advanced app using it
(Gjallar) fulltime this year and it is really great.
