NEWS RELEASE 10/22/2008
More User Reports, Blaha Paper Published
ODBMS.ORG, a vendor-independent non-profit group of high-profile software experts
lead by Prof. Roberto Zicari, today announced the exclusive publication of a third series of new user reports on using
technologies for storing and handling persistent objects and a
new paper by ODBMS.ORG panel member
Today, 7 additional user reports
(18-24/08) have been published, from the following users:
The complete initial series of user reports is available for
New Blaha Paper on OO Design of Stored Procedures
Also, ODBMS.ORG published a new paper by
Michael Blaha, Bill Huth and Peter Cheung on
Object-Oriented Design of Database Stored Procedures (PDF). Object-oriented
(OO) software engineering techniques are often used with programming languages,
but they also apply to relational databases. OO techniques are not only helpful
for determining database structure, but also for designing stored procedure code.
In fact, we were surprised by the magnitude of the stored procedure benefits. OO
techniques boost development productivity as well as the quality, clarity, and maintainability
of the resulting code.
In addition, a new paper by Miguel Garcia and Rakesh Prithiviraj at TU Hamburg on
Rethinking the Architecture of OR Mapping for EMF in terms of LINQ (PDF) was
added to the recent spate of papers on LINQ and ODBMS. This paper focusses on demands
placed on Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) in order to support comprehensive queries,
as known from LINQ and Scala.
The ODBMS.ORG expert panel added
Prof. Dr. Robert Hirschfeld at Hasso-Plattner-Institut Potsdam to its now
ODBMS.ORG (www.odbms.org) is a vendor-independent, not-for-profit educational program
on object database technology and the integration between object-oriented programming
and databases. Designed by Prof. Roberto Zicari of Frankfurt University, the program's
goal is to promote and further the use of object databases - by offering free resources
for students, faculty and researchers at universities and research centers, as well
as for JAVA and .NET developers in the commercial and the open source world. Content
is provided by a panel of internationally recognized experts, who share research
articles and teaching materials with the community via the organization's Web portal.
