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.

Complex objects, object identity.

Minimizing the oodgms between these three views of designers’ and programmers’ thinking referred to as “conceptual modeling” is considered the major factor reducing the complexity of the analysis, design, construction and maintenance of the software.

A next run of the program takes the value of this variable from the previous run.

oodbmw The internal properties of an object are subdivided into two parts: Availability of qualified personnel. Moreover, the standard still presents a moving target, as currently three versions are released and a next version is announced.

The same message sent to different objects can invoke different 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.

The products are called “object-relational”. Object-oriented concepts Object-oriented database models adopt the concepts of object-oriented programming languages.

The worlds presented in Fig. Although probably the standard will not fulfill all expectations, it already plays an important role of integrating research and development efforts devoted to object bases.

The object-orientedness, which follows architectute natural human psychology, is considered as a new hope to reduce the complexity; in consequence, to reduce the software crisis. The presented arguments are very difficult to accept by the wide community of database professionals. The object database manifesto has determined basic rules of object database systems, which abandon the relational model. Unfortunately, this point of view archltecture in language monsters, such as SQL3, or in weakly defined artifacts, such as the ODMG standard.

Factors of the software complexity. The competitive “The Third Generation Database Systems Manifesto” [Ston90] by Stonebraker et al postulates retaining all practically proven features of relational database systems notably SQL, as an “intergalactic dataspeak” and augmenting them modestly by new features, among them with some object-oriented concepts.

For instance, the class Person is a superclass of the odobms Employee and Student. Object database systems combine the classical capabilities of relational database management systems RDBMSwith new functionalities assumed by the object-orientedness. Properties of more abstract classes are inherited by more specific classes.

Why is object-orientedness important for computer technologies? They are equipped with facilities for efficient application development. Manifestos The history of database manifestos started in mid ties, when E.

This is supposed to be achieved by reducing the distance between the human perception of the problem business domain, an abstract conceptual model of the problem domain expressed, e. Three views in the conceptual modeling of software Object-oriented models offer notions that enable the analyst and designer to map the business problem to the abstract conceptual schema better. A lot of research and development from the industry and academia is devoted to various aspects of object-relational and object-oriented DBMS.


The manifesto is a random extract of primary and quite secondary database features, expressed by a bit demagogic rhetoric. It determines the meaning of basic concepts pf object-oriented data structures, such as: There is a lot of controversy around the SQL3 standard.

On the other hand, object database systems offer similar notions from the side of architectude structures, hence the mapping between the conceptual model and data structures is much simpler than in the case of the traditional relational systems. Maturity of the technology. In such a case these values are not directly accessible, but exclusively by methods.

Besides, the bindings define many classes written in the syntax of a particular programming languageallowing to access and process an object base directly from an application written in one of the mentioned languages. Each database object has identity, i.

Lack of commonly accepted definitions concerning the object model is considered a weakness of object-orientation in databases.
