Relations as Semantic Constructs in an Object-Oriented Language

  title={Relations as Semantic Constructs in an Object-Oriented Language},
  author={J. Rumbaugh},
The relation as a semantic construct in an object-oriented language clearly expresses associations and constraints among objects which would otherwise be buried in implementation code. The externalization of references between objects permits a symmetric, non-redundant conceptual model which merits its own special notation and predefined operations. The object-relation model, which combines the object-oriented model with the entity-relationship model from data base theory, is particularly… Expand
