Persistent Objects and Capabilities in Timor
By: J. Leslie Keedy, Klaus Espenlaub, Christian Heinlein, Gisela Menger
The orthogonal persistence approach in Timor eliminates the need for languages to provide separate sets of constructs for handling temporary and persistent data. It also eliminates additional programming effort at the application level for converting information between temporary and persistent formats. However, this does not necessarily imply that the work involved in the flattening of data is entirely eliminated, since in some approaches the latter simply becomes the responsibility of a run-time library or other software support.
