The Cndnsd Vrsn: 4:00pm Tuesday February 10 ACS Rm 123 - The Object-Level Database Standard for Java: ODMG
The Object Database Management Group (ODMG) has defined an object-level
database interface for Java. All of the object database vendors will support
this interface. In addition, JavaSoft is preparing a product called Java
Blend that supports the ODMG Java and Object Query Language (OQL) interfaces
on top of all relational (JDBC) data sources. Thus this interface will
provide a high degree of portability across all object and relational
database products. The talk will introduce the ODMG Java and OQL interfaces,
discuss the current implementations, and cover enhancements made
to the standard since the latest book (ODMG 2.0, May 1997).
David Jordan is a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff at Lucent
Technologies. He is the author of Addison Wesley's book titled
C++ Object Databases. He is a member of SIGS' Java Report Online
Advisory Board and has a regular column in Java Report covering
database technologies. He serves as the ODMG C++ editor and has
co-edited three of their books on the standard. He has been
involved with object databases since 1986, and has also implemented
many application object models on network, relational, and flat
file databases. His home page is at www.infinet.com/~jdjordan
