I don't know which one you were thinking of using.  I just spent  two years
working on  real-time system using an OODB - they are now getting rid of
the DB.  You'll probably want to have  separate server talking to the DB
server to avoid high startup time.  Superior data management depends on
your application. In general I would say yes, but moving forward to new
data structures is seldom an automatic process and can be painful.
Superior querying is iffy.  The main advantage would be avoiding the need
to query - if you have to query your performance is probaby going to be
worse.

I'm not sure which upsets me more: that people are so unwilling to accept
responsibility for their own actions, or that they are so eager to regulate
everyone else's.
