Object-oriented database systems are emerging as the “next generation” DBMSs for advanced applications, e.g., VLSI design, mechanical CAD/CAM, software engineering, etc. However, a close analysis indicates that the requirements imposed by these application domains cannot be met by an object-oriented model that relies purely onpassive objects. In this work we go beyond the conventionalsingle-thread-of-control paradigm of passive object models and propose a model ofactive objects which can… CONTINUE READING
