  Object database - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Starting in 2004, object databases have seen a second growth period when open source object databases emerged that were widely affordable and easy to use, because they are entirely written in OOP languages like Java or C#, such as db4o (db4objects) and Perst (McObject).
Object databases based on persistent programming acquired a niche in application areas such as engineering and spatial databases, telecommunications, and scientific areas such as high energy physics and molecular biology.
Additionally, object databases lack a formal mathematical foundation, unlike the relational model, and this in turn leads to weaknesses in their query support.

 Object-relational mapping - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Object-Relational mapping (or O/RM), is a programming technique that links databases to object-oriented language concepts, creating (in effect) a "virtual object database." There are both free and commercial packages available that perform object-relational mapping, although some programmers opt to code their own object-relational mapping for their systems.
The crux of the problem is in translating those objects to forms which can be stored in files or databases, and which can later be retrieved easily while preserving the properties of the objects and their relationships; these objects can then be said to be persistent.
Using relational databases to store object-oriented data leads to a semantic gap where programmers would be required to allow their software to function in two different worlds — processing of data would be done in object-oriented form, but the same data would have to be stored in relational form.

 Object Database vs. Object-Relational Databases
It is this new class of database we want to discuss and contrast with the relational databases from which they are evolving and also with the pure object databases they will never replace.
The object model used by the Object Database Management Group in its ODMG-93 standard is derived from the OMG Common Object Model, and the model has been supplemented with bindings for C++, Smalltalk, and Java as well as Object Definition Language (ODL, based on OMG's IDL), the aforementioned OQL, meta-object access, and object interchange.
Although the object database vendors, in general, are in a much better technical position to support the type of extensibility required to build an ecosystem, they can't deliver much market size.

 Why Aren't You Using An Object Oriented Database Management System?
This causes a certain inefficency as objects must be mapped to tuples in the database and vice versa instead of the data being stored in a way that is consistent with the programming model.
Object oriented programming concepts such as encapsulation, polymorphism and inheritance are enforced as well as database management concepts such as the ACID properties (Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation and Durability) which lead to system integrity, support for an ad hoc query language and secondary storage management systems which allow for managing very large amounts of data.
Database operations typically involve obtaining a database root from the the OODBMS which is usually a data structure like a graph, vector, hash table, or set and traversing it to obtain objects to create, update or delete from the database.

 Frontier: The Object Database
The object database is at the heart of the Frontier enviroment.
The basic approach is to specify the full name of the object, with each sub-table of which it is a member appearing in order from the root level down to the object, and each sub-table's name separated from the others by a period.
Any object whose full name begins with any of these paths will be found if you supply only the remainder of its name (i.e., the part that would be appended to the end of one of these known paths).

 Database Models: Hierarcical, Network, Relational, Object-Oriented, Semistructured, Associative and Context.
This one-to-one mapping of object programming language objects to database objects has two benefits over other storage approaches: it provides higher performance management of objects, and it enables better management of the complex interrelationships between objects.
In such database there is no clear separation between the data and the schema, and the degree to which it is structured depends on the application.
Such databases subsume the modelling power of recent extensions of flat relational databases, to nested databases which allow the nesting (or encapsulation) of entities, and to object databases which, in addition, allow cyclic references between objects.

 Object Database by Objectivity   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
An object database is defined as a database in which information is represented in the form of objects, rather than records or as tables, rows and columns.
The objects can be manipulated only by using the methods or functions defined for the class to which the object belongs.
Objects are organized into a type hierarchy and subtypes inherit the characteristics of their supertypes.

 EMBEDDED OBJECT ORIENTED DATABASE SYSTEMS FOR JAVA AND CSHARP   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Objects are accessed indirectly through an object index (i.e., an array whose elements contain the offset of objects in the file).
When an object is modified for the first time, it is cloned (a copy of the object is created) and the object handle in the current index is changed to point to the newly-created object copy.
The indicator of the current index in the database object header is used to determine the index corresponding to the last consistent database state.

 Object Oriented Databases
Object Oriented databases may be characterized quite simply; they typically represent database systems that integrate tightly with a language with object-oriented features such as
Thus, once you tie a data structure to the database, you no longer need to be concerned about whether a piece of data is in memory or not; as soon as your program refers to it, the data will be pulled into memory if it is not already there.
Database server is implemented using multithreaded kernel and provides high concurrency on client requests execution.

 ONJava.com -- Simple Object Persistence with the db4o Object Database
However, the interface is complicated by the "impedance mismatch" between the domain object model of the application and the relational model of the database.
The object model is based on software engineering principles and models the objects in the problem domain, while the relational model is based on mathematical principles and organizes data for efficient storage and retrieval.
Some solutions to this problem, such as Hibernate and Java Data Objects, are designed to provide the developer with transparent persistence: the application deals with persistent objects using an object-oriented API without the need for SQL code to be embedded in the Java code.

 SEDS Messier Database
During the years from 1758 to 1782 Charles Messier, a French astronomer (1730 - 1817), compiled a list of approximately 100 diffuse objects that were difficult to distinguish from comets through the telescopes of the day.
It was one of the first major milestones in the history of the discovery of Deep Sky objects, as it was the first more comprehensive and more reliable list: Only four objects were initially missing because of data reduction errors, which could be figured out later though.
The study of these objects by astronomers has led, and continues to lead, to important, incredible discoveries such as the life cycles of stars, the reality of galaxies as separate 'island universes,' and the possible age of the universe.

Dropping rapidly to sea level, we have a couple of options for vivisecting the object: reflection allows us to programmatically query the object's public fields, and serialization allows us to automatically encode all the fields of the object.
This interface describes the backend object database process: storing object fields in a database and retrieving them from the database.
