Yesterday Mike Tallent, via Twitter, made his congratulations to me for my recent "Db4o community award".

Is it a joke? The reason seems to reside in the homepage of TevereFlow that claims to support db4o. After some private messages with a db4o guy I explained that TevereFlow supports db4o since it uses DataNucleus as OR-Mapping and it supports db4o. Therefore TevereFlow can run on top of db4o but the support is indirect. All clear.

But after some days I found my name in the "DB4O MOST VALUES PROFESSIONAL" list:

Thanks a lot, but I never have written a single line of code for/with db4o!

Furthermore I'm the author of OrientDB, a competitor of db4o.

So is it a joke? :-)
