There is nothing special when using a gemstone database. Just use the collection protocol you are used to. It might not be a good idea to use allInstances in gemstone because this could be a costly operation. If you collect your instances on the class side you can do

MyClass instances select: [:each| each field = 'value1' and: [ each field2 = 'value2']]

This should be sufficient for simple queries. If your collections are getting large (>10000) there are several options in gemstone to optimize.

hope that helps,
