Abstract. This paper reviews the state of the art of Object-Oriented Database Management. Systems (OODBMS). The objective of this paper is to provide the. Some basic questions about OODBMS architecture: Do all OODBMS systems have a common set of underlying principles? (In the same way as relational DBMS. OO+DBMS=OODBMS which clearly shows that it is mixture. of both object .. affect the entire architecture of the database but in OODBMS this.

An ODL schema determines collections of objects, relationships between objects, object attributes, operations that can be applied to the objects, exceptions that can be caused by these operations. The changes wrought by these technologies will require both a basic grasp of the technologies and an effective way to deal with how these changes will affect the people who build and use the systems in our organizations. This research is carried on by the author of this paper [Subi95, Subi97] and some other authors.

Principles of Object-Oriented Analysis and Design. Till now, the concept of persistent polymorphic DBPLs is not popular in the commercial world. A bit of optimism is caused by the fact that some ideas of persistent polymorphic DBPLs are slowly influencing the commercial world. A database can be considered a collection of persistent variables. Unfortunately, the relational model and the object model are fundamentally different, and integrating the two is not straightforward.

Object-relational companies have demonstrated that this new technology can be implemented and that they are ahead in terms of technology. Thus cleaning up the inconsistency between various language features takes a lot of time. Some other people from the relational camp have claimed that it is impossible to build a consistent theory for object query languages. Many professionals consider ORDBMS as a temporary result of the evolution from the relational to the pure object-oriented technology.


Akademicka Oficyna Wydawnicza, Warszawa in Polish. There is a lot of controversy around the SQL3 standard. Of course, this is not an argument against SQL3 actually nobody cares about the rulesbut shows that SQL3 follows a very eclectic idea. The user can also declare derived virtual attributes of a table, i.

The class is understood as a blueprint for objects; i. A next run of the program takes the value of this variable from the previous run. It is intended to be independent of any programming language as far as possible. They are developed mainly at universities although PJama is developed by Sun, and there are some startup companies, such as Higher Order Inc. The user of an object can refer to public properties only.

For each declared table a “sub-table” can be declared. It determines the meaning of basic concepts of object-oriented data structures, such as: The pure motivation is the commercial profit rather than conceptual clarity or software engineering principles.

ODL is used to determine the structure of a database, i. The traditional capabilities include: Qrchitecture professionals are trying to assign strong, technical criteria to this buzzword, allowing us to distinguish the “object-oriented” systems from others. Properties of more abstract classes are inherited by more specific classes.

Object-Oriented Database Management System (OODBMS) Definition

This vision is of course negated by vendors of these systems, who invented the buzzword “universal server” as the stereotype of “doing everything both with relations and objects, and more”. The material presented in this paper comes from hundreds of publications and thousands of Web pages. Together with an extremely rich collection of various features, Architdcture is downward compatible with SQL and follows the too sweet and non-orthogonal select SQL3 supports user-defined abstract data types ADTsincluding methods, object identifiers, subtypes, inheritance and polymorphism.

More advanced are the three-tier architecture and multi-tier architecture, where layers tiers of a user interface and a database are separated by one or more layers devoted to business logic. Actually, there is no agreement concerning their precise definition.

Object-oriented concepts Object-oriented database models adopt the concepts of object-oriented programming languages. This shift of the database paradigms caused a hot debate between advocates of relational systems, having already a strong position on the market, and proponents of pure object-oriented database management systems OODBMS. The manifesto is a random extract of primary and quite architecturee database features, expressed by a bit demagogic rhetoric.

Every relational vendor has announced or promised object-relational products.

A number of object features are provided as an extension to this core relational model multi-row tables, references between rows, inheritance between tables, etc. What makes up object-orientation in databases? A sub-table contains all the attributes of its parent table plus some new attributes. For many years the professionals have pointed out the negative syndrom that is referred to as “software crisis”.

Next Generation Object Database Standardization. The standard is far to be complete especially concerning the semantics and functionality of defined languages and contains many bugs and inconsistencies. Other ideas, such as the minimality of languages’ options, full orthogonality of independent features, clear separation between primary built-in and secondary options, the common naming-scoping-binding mechanisms for both querying and programming, etc.

They are also called “object-oriented database systems. Various products present the choice of quite random, redundant, limited and sometimes inconsistent features.

Technical details assumed by designers in particular models, languages and products make concepts with the same name class, type, ADT, etc. Stability of the vendors. The same message sent to different objects can invoke different operations.
