  abstract =     "In the scenario of distributed processing for
                 evolutionary algorithms the adoption of object-oriented
                 database management systems (ODBMS) may yield
                 improvements in terms of both robustness and
                 flexibility. Populations of evolvable individuals can
                 be made persistent across several evolutionary runs,
                 making it possible to devise incremental strategies.
                 Moreover, virtually any number of evolutionary
                 processes may be run in parallel on the same underlying
                 population without explicit synchronisation beyond that
                 provided by the locking mechanism of the ODBMS. This
                 paper describes a design pattern for a genetic
                 programming environment that allows combining existing
                 techniques with persistent population storage and
