Description

This article is from the Object-Oriented Technology FAQ, by Bob Hathaway rjh@geodesic.com with numerous contributions by others.

9.3) Odapter/OpenODB: Additional Products

* Development Environments and Tools
Odapter allows you to use your favorite development
environments for application development. Some
tools are more tightly coupled with Odapter than
others. HP has recruited tools partners to address
all aspects of application development including
application design and analysis, data model
manipulation, fourth generation language
application development, report writing and legacy
data access.

* Relational Database
Odapter uses a relational database as its storage
manager for the storage of Odapter objects. The
relational database performs physical file
management and database functions such as multi-
user concurrency, transaction management, and
recovery. The relational database allows you to
perform on-line backup and recovery, manage
physical distribution of files, maximize
availability and change database parameters.

* COMPASS
COMPASS is a consulting product which includes the
Hewlett-Packard implementation of the
Petrotechnical Open Software Corporation (POSC)
Software Integration Platform (SIP) specification.
The SIP specification defines a data model and an
interface which allow users and applications to
access exploration and production data, independent
of the database engine technology.

The COMPASS package is an add-on to Odapter and
includes:
* COMPASS specific consulting/training (1 day)
* POSC-based DAE interface library and documentation
* Interactive user interface called ixpres
* Archived copy of a pre-loaded Odapter
enhanced database with sample reference data
* Scripts for building a POSC-based Odapter
enhanced database
* Contributed software library (data loaders,
demonstration programs)

COMPASS gives developers a 'jump start' on building
applications focused on petroleum exploration and
production. Other industries will find COMPASS an
inexpensive and useful approach for building
geographic information systems (GIS) and other
applications which can re-use of the cartography
(mapmaking) and geometric objects defined in the
model.

POSC is a not-for profit organization created to
lower the costs associated with accessing and
integrating exploration and production data for the
oil and gas industry.
