Abstract:

For many applications, traditional data base models and technologies have proven inadequate, and this has led to research and development of database technologies based on the object-oriented paradigm. In this report, some of the recent research and development in object-oriented databases are surveyed. The core concepts that are being considered in developing a unified object-oriented data model are discussed, followed by some of the architectural issues involved in developing object-oriented database management systems. Technical summaries of two prototype object-oriented database products, GEMSTONE AND ORION, are given. Also, some of the exciting future research directions are highlighted. kr
