This is a possible flame generating question.
I am no "senior member", but I'll tell you my brief experience:
Discard if you intend to use the free version with Squeak.
Excellent code integration, probably the most elegant of all.
Can run as server and client images separately.
Has a great query language that no one else has
Has special classes for large collections that you can create indexes
to specific attributes
Has programmable ReadStrategies
Has excellent support from its creator Chris Muller, and the list.
The bad thing: It is a bit too slow. Both for inserting and for
querying, even on mid sized collections (a few thousand elements) with
indexes and optimal read strategies can still be pretty slow.
- Glorp / Postgres
I'm just starting to test this, but it seems to run _real_ fast.
It is A LOT more work to do the initial set up (OR mappings).
