The Eclipse Modeling Framework (2) will be used to implement the modeling components of the application comprising a conceptual modeling step with GiACoMo--IRS as a starting point followed by a model-to-model mapping to generate an ORDBMS specific model of CBIR, which can be refined manually in the modeling environment.
Therefore, it can be assumed that the conceptual model is also implementable onto an ORDBMS system.
Techniques for the generation of an implementation of the concrete CBIR model on top of an ORDBMS were presented.
Robust ORDBMS - A developer will find it easy to make C/C++ objects persistent with the database functionality that supports: sophisticated caching, robust rollback and crash recovery, powerful query capability, intelligent database compaction, b-tree and hash indexes, and enhanced performance.
Light Weight - Omniscience ORDBMS is based on an efficient and compact object kernel that is a light weight DBMS with a very small footprint.
Standards - An important aspect of the Omniscience ORDBMS is the conformance to standards.
Interoperability - The Omniscience ORDBMS supports both relational and object database models.
