The course examines the principles and techniques of providing data management in object-oriented programming environments. After introducing the basics of object storage and management, we will cover semantic object models and their implementation. Finally, we discuss advanced data management services such as version models for temporal and engineering databases and for software configuration.


The goal of this course is to extend the student's knowledge of database technologies towards object-oriented solutions. Starting with basic principles, students also learn about commercial products and research projects in the domain of object-oriented data management. Apart from getting to know the characteristics of these approaches and the differences between them, the course also discusses what application requirements justify the use of object-oriented databases. Therefore, it educates students to make informed decisions on when to use what database technology.
