An overview of data models of object-oriented DBMSS.

A.M. Eldarkhanov.


Object-oriented DBMS theory is one of the most prospective areas of modern database theory, along with deductive and temporal DBMS. Nevertheless, a high variety of different approaches and absence of a uniform standard, both in theoretical OODBMS area (object calculus, data models) and in practical area (query languages, database API for programming languages), seriously hinder creation of firm OODBMS basics. The purpose of this article is to analyze the existing concepts of OODBMS structure, observing object data models and formal mathematical models; finally, a number of primary actual problems of OODBMS theory is formulated.
