We are using /rdb from Revolutionary Software (rdb@rsw.com) and 
like it very much.  It is very simple to use -- essentially, the 
Unix shell is your 4GL.  The last time I checked, the price for 
a Linux /rdb server license was $149, which is pretty hard to beat.  

We are doing CGI programming with it, and it is really easy.  
You could use any language you want ... perl, shell, awk, C, etc.  
Combined with agrep and/or glimpse, it is very powerful.  For use 
with objects, just store links to them.  

Revolutionary Software's number is 408-429-6229.  URL is:
