It's an object oriented database, with a structure that is similar to 
files and directories in an ordinary OS.

But it is a lot smarter, because the files and directories are actually 
objects with different attributes and parameters.

The methods on these objects can then be called eg. from a web browser 
with different parameters. But you can also use other protocols than 
http like dav, ftp etc.

This is a very effective way to build web applications, and does not 
need sql-object remapping as normal web apps does.
