In the article the review of tools used in a new type object DBMS for increasing the efficiency of access to data is provided. Some object DIM DBMS features based on the use of the classes of object relations as object sets (inheritance, inclusion, interaction and history) and object relations (inheritance, internal inheritance, inclusion, internal inclusion, interaction and history) are described. The description of the subject domain is entered by means of an object and dynamic data model (OD-model), and DIM DBMS completeness for any OD-model is justified. An ODQL object query language allowing to combine the exact description complexity with the simplicity of use due to two
query level introduction is described. For the elucidation of the most effective way of the appeal to DIM DBMS the study of various query technologies for this environment is conducted, and mechanisms for user work with it are developed and realized. Software development ”The Generator of ODQL-queries” is considered which is necessary for simplification of query creation to DIM DBMS, needless for the user to know the syntax of a modern query language. Problems of converting data from the existing DBMS into DIM DBMS are considered.
