Abstract : Future generations of database systems will have to support a much wider variety of data objects than today's systems. Texts, voice, drawings, and pictures will have to be handled in an integrated fashion together with today's record oriented data in hierarchies, networks and relations. To achieve this goal, a knowledge based, object and abstract data type oriented approach is proposed and consequences for the database management system, the information system design tools, and the system dictionary are discussed.
