Abstract : An object-oriented database system is a database system in which the concept of abstract data types is used strictly for describing and using the database. In consequence the data are described in conjunction with the appropriate operations, the only operations allowed on that data. The object-oriented database system Object-Base, presented here, allows a hierarchy of data types. That kind of database description enables the system to be adjustable to very different application characteristics. Different levels of user interfaces, from the unexperienced casual user to the sophisticated system programmer, are provided.
