This short paper presents a system offering parallel persistent and polymorphic sets of objects, on the level of an existing general purpose object-oriented programming language, like Modula-3 and JAVA. The user of such a system gets distribution and persistence in the same natural way, as users of traditional systems get volatile arrays of numbers of objects. In addition, advantages are taken from sophisticated optimization techniques.
