The current database research trend 1s towards systems whrch can deal with advanced data apphcatrons that go beyond the standard “enterprise” or “office” database apphcatron This trend 1s reflected m the research on extension architectures [5,18,21] and obJect-oriented databases [2,3,12,21] Along wrth thus trend, the need for better and easier-to-use database end-user Interfaces has been stressed [18,21] Therefore, we propose a graph-based data model, which shares many features wrth exrstmg… Expand
GraphDB: A Data Model and Query Language for Graphs in Databases
TLDR
The GraphDB model allows for an explicit representation of graphs by partitioning object classes into simple classes, link classes, and path classes whose objects can be viewed as nodes, edges and explicitly stored paths of a graph. Expand
GRAS, a Graph-Oriented (Software) Engineering Database System
TLDR
The underlying data model and the functionality of GRAS, a database system which has been designed according to the requirements of software engineering, CAD, or office automation, are described. Expand
Implementing Hyperlog , a Graph-Based Database Language
We describe the implementation of Hyperlog , a graph-based declarative language which supports both queries and updates over a graph-based data model called the Hypernode Model. This model is capableExpand
CGOOD, a Categorical Graph-Oriented Object Data Model
TLDR
This article introduces an object-oriented data model which solves shortcomings of the relational data model, and shows that this query language is able to express the relational database operators, functional abstraction and transitive closure. Expand
Explicit Graphs in a Functional Model for Spatial Databases
TLDR
A new data model and query language that especially supports graph structures is defined, which leads to powerful modeling and querying capabilities for spatial databases, in particular for spatially embedded networks such as highways, rivers, public transport, and so forth. Expand
A Graphical Schema Representation for Object-Oriented Databases
TLDR
A graphical schema representation for object-oriented databases (OODBs) which incorporates a wide variety of symbols including those for classes, attributes, methods, user-defined relationships, constraint relationships, and generic (system-defined) relationships—enough to support a diverse group of object- oriented data models is presented. Expand
GraphDB: Modeling and Querying Graphs in Databases
TLDR
A data model and query language that integrates an explicit modeling and querying of graphs smoothly into a standard database environment and permits a natural representation and sophisticated queries of networks, in particular of spatially embedded networks like highways, public transport, etc. Expand
Survey of graph database models
TLDR
The main objective of this survey is to present the work that has been conducted in the area of graph database modeling, concentrating on data structures, query languages, and integrity constraints. Expand
GDM: A New Graph Based Data Model Using Functional Abstractionx
TLDR
The Graph Data Model (GDM) has been proposed as an alternative data model to combine the advantages of the relational model with the positive features of semantic data models, and a Graph Query Language (GQL) is developed, maintaining similarity with the widely accepted user-friendly SQL. Expand
The model-assisted global query system for multiple databases in distributed enterprises
TLDR
This article develops a new approach, a “model-assisted global query system,” that utilizes an on-line repository of enterprise metadata—the Metadatabase—to facilitate global query formulation and processing with certain desirable properties such as adaptiveness and open-systems architecture.

TLDR
This paper attempts to define an object-oriented database system and takes a position, not so much expecting it to be the final word as to erect a provisional landmark to orient further debate. Expand

A graphical query language supporting recursion
TLDR
G is proposed as a complementary language in which recursive queries are simple to formulate, and it is hoped that this graphical query language can be able to exploit well-known graph algorithms in evaluating recursive queries efficiently, a topic which has received widespread attention recently.
