Shore (Scalable Heterogeneous Object REpository) is a persistent
object system under development at the University of Wisconsin.
Shore represents a merger of object-oriented database and file system
In this document we give the goals and motivation for Shore,
and describe how Shore provides features of both technologies.
We also describe some novel aspects of the Shore architecture, including
its symmetric peer-to-peer server architecture
and its support for
server customization through an extensible value-added server
As will be described, an initial version of Shore has
been operational at the University of Wisconsin for some time,
is now ready for use by the general public.
This document is intended as a first introduction to
the system for people interested in trying to use it in their work.
