A Framework for Performance Estimation of Object-Oriented Databases." methodology
- Saxena, Vipin, Ajay Pratap
the paper illustrates the emergence of Object-oriented databases as a better alternative to the traditional relational databases. Even though they are yet to gain a strong footing commercially, they have laid down a very firm foundation for a database management system that will efficiently cater to the needs of fully automated object oriented database management systems in the future. The paper compares empirically the performance of OODBMS and RDBMS. DB4O and SQLserver have been adopted as the candidate databases for the experiment purpose. The paper also describes the benefits of Object-oriented databases and in addition to this, it also addresses some concerns which are preventing them from gaining upper hand in the world of Database Management Systems.
