I am essentially a newbie but I have a little, very little, experience 
using GemStone (GLASS).  When using GemStone, there seems to be none of 
the typical impedance mismatch between my domain model and the database.

I ported a small app that I built, from PostgreSql to GemStone, and most 
of my porting work involved ripping out code.  I was left with something 
that was much simpler to understand and a lot less code to maintain.

I have just scratched the surface, GemStone seems to offer a lot of 
value IMHO.

Hope my opinion is of some value.
