I have used WOOD for years as a proxy cache for data stored
elsewhere, typically XML files or resources. If the database is
corrupted, it can be regenerated with no loss of data.
For example, my Interaction web application platform parses XML files
and resources into structures in a WOOD database, only updating the
database when the files or resources change. This allows fast server-
side processing of XML content no matter the size of the files or the
memory of the computer.
I think WOOD has a great potential to be used for application data
caches, like those frequently kept in the ~user/Library/Caches folder.
