Avanti: project update


Peter writes: "A preview version of PicoDB (a simple, lightweight DBMS core written in Java) along with technical documentation has been posted to the Avanti project website. PicoDB is the integrated database component for the Avanti library system. With a design philosophy that emhasizes simplicity, it is being developed in anticipation of Avanti having to run in environments where a fully functional DBMS may not be available and to minimize the need to integrate with other software components for basic functionality.
