We propose an effective framework with a solid theoretical basis for optimizing OODB query languages.
We use both a calculus and an algebra as intermediate forms because the calculus closely resembles current OODB languages and is easy to put into canonical form, while the algebra is lower-level and can be directly translated into the execution algorithms supported by database systems.
The simplicity of our method is due to the monoid comprehension calculus as an intermediate form for OODB queries.
1991; Gatziu and Dittrich 1994] provides active facilities on top of the ObjectStore commercial OODB.
Despite this, proposals for active extensions to OODBs abound, with early proposals being made only a few years after the first work on passive OODBs.
Other examples of active extensions to OODBs are presented in Dittrich [1993], Etzion et al.
A cooperative commit will update the part in the OODB.
Currently our systems do not support versioning of hypermedia objects, but we are planning to provide such versioning support at the general OODB level.
Combining an OODB with a transparent object-oriented interprocess communications mechanism we have described to be considerably simplified.
Combining a facility such as RPC++ with an OODB would reduce the load on the Link Engine and provide a hypermedia system with transparent object storage.
The OODB system is faster than both the in-house system and POSTGRES on the insert operation because it clusters different record types on the same disk page.
A second comment is that the in-house and OODB systems run the database in the same address space as the user program.
