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 technologies.

The objective of the SHORE project is to design, implement, and evaluate a persistent object system that will serve the needs of a wide variety of target applications including hardware and software CAD systems, persistent programming languages, geographic information systems, satellite data repositories, and multi-media applications. Shore expands on the basic capabilities of the widely-used EXODUS Storage Manager (developed at Wisconsin, funded by ARPA ) in a number of ways including support for typed objects, multiple programming languages, a "Unix-like" hierarchical name space for named objects, and a Unix-compatible interface to objects with a "text" field. This interface is intended to ease the transition of applications from the Unix file system environment to Shore as existing Unix tools such as vi and cc will be able to store their data in Shore objects without modification (basically a Unix file becomes either a single Shore object or the text field of a more complex object).
