Abstract:

This paper describes the design and proposed implementation of a shared object hierarchy. The object hierarchy is stored in a relational database and objects referenced by an application program are cached in the programs address space. The paper describes the database representation for the object hierarchy and the use of POSTGRES, a next-generation relational database management system, to implement object referencing efficiently. The shared object hierarchy system will be used to implement Object FADS, an object- oriented programming environment for interactive database applications that will be the main programming interface to POSTGRES.
