Object Database Technology Users and Vendors Roundtable

The purpose of this meeting is to gather together vendors and users of Object Database Technology in order to learn and share their opinions on the work performed so far by the OMG Object Database Technology Working Group (ODBTWG). Working from the responses to the Request for Information (RFI) we issued in February 2006, our group has been investigating the research done by Prof. Kazimierz Subieta of the Polish Japanese Institute for Information Technology (PJIT) in Warsaw, Poland. Prof. Subieta’s team has developed an approach called “Stack-Based Architecture (SBA)” for defining the contents of an object database, the semantics of an abstract stack-based query processor, and its associated query language (SBQL). We consider this work to represent the object equivalent of the relational calculus in that it provides a precisely defined, semantically complete set of definitions of what objects are, how they are stored, and how they can be queried. We would like to base any future object database standard on the SBA object model so that the language bindings, query languages, etc. that follow are well defined, self-consistent, and complete. Doing this would address many of the criticisms leveled at the earlier ODMG standards.

The ODBTWG has prepared a white paper on our approach to future object database standardization and our incorporation of Prof. Subieta’s ideas, which you can downloaded from:  Prof. Subieta will attend this meeting and present an overview and brief demonstration of his work, concrete implementations of which have been built for various EU projects. We will then open up the discussion to all participants. We are especially eager to hear the thoughts from object database vendors about Prof. Subieta’s ideas and to explain how we think the principles of the SBA could be incorporated into future object database standards. We also welcome discussions on what future object database standards should or should not look like, open-source collaborative projects such as reference implementations or conformance test suites, trends in the object database marketplace, level of user interest in object database technology, etc. In short, we are seeking both industry and user participation. Nothing will be off-limits.
