Object-Relational Databases (ORDBMS) are the "next great wave" of database technology, offering powerful opportunities to enhance flexibility, functionality, performance, and enterprise integration. In this book, Informix database architect Paul Brown explains ORDBMS technology in depth, and introduces a start-to-finish design and implementation methodology for ORDBMS development. Brown covers all this, and more:
- Key features and characteristics of today's leading object-relational databases
- ORDBMS data models, schema, queries, data types, functions, and routines
- The ORDBMS as middleware: integrating the entire enterprise
- DataBlade modules: extending ORDBMS functionality creatively
- Using Java to create UDTs and UDRs
Object-Relational Database Development brings key features, techniques, and methodologies to life through a start-to-finish e-commerce case study that demonstrates the compelling advantages of ORDBMS technology. Whether you're a database programmer or decision-maker, you won't find a more realistic, insightful guide to ORDBMS development.
The accompanying CD-ROM contains complete, ready-to-run source code, including a start-to-finish object-relational database application.
