eXtensible Database Adapter - a Framework for CORBA/ODBMS Integration.

Serge Shumilov, Armin B. Cremers: eXtensible Database Adapter - a Framework for CORBA/ODBMS Integration CSIT 2000 : 47-54


This paper describes the first hand experience gained in implementing remote CORBA access for object-oriented database ObjectStore. Integration of CORBA and Object-Oriented Database Management Systems (ODBMS) permits the encapsulation of the powerful database facilities within the heterogeneous CORBA environment. As opposed to current OMG ideas for handling persistent objects, this approach pays more attention to support distribution for existing data-bases. The main idea is to reduce costs of the wrap-per's development using an adaptable to a proprietary database basis - an eXtensible Database Adapter (XDA). The XDA's prototype was evaluated in the development of CORBA wrapper for real object-oriented database.
