  • Abstract This paper outlines the use of Prolog for implementing object-oriented databases (OODBs), to indicate both the benefits and costs associated with Prolog as an implementation platform. The different roles which Prolog can play in the implementation of an OODB are illustrated by reference to example systems which, although they use Prolog as an implementation language, have significantly different architectures. These architectures are compared and assessed, both in terms of the… CONTINUE READING
