9.3) Odapter/OpenODB (Hewlett-Packard) (Commercial Systems - OO Data Model - Object-oriented Databases And Vendors)

Odapter is HP's new object/relational adapter which
enables object-oriented developers to share a common
object model stored in the ORACLE7 relational database
management system (RDBMS). Odapter is also available with
HP's ALLBASE/SQL RDBMS. The combination of Odapter
and ALLBASE/SQL is called OpenODB.

A Productivity Tool for Scalable Object-Oriented
Applications

Odapter is a tool for developers writing scalable
object-oriented applications requiring the
integration of new objects and legacy information.
Odapter is valuable because it:
* accelerates application development
* reduces the cost of keeping applications current
* enables applications to scale

Odapter delivers the productivity of object
technology while adhering to your data management
standards.

Consider Odapter if you need to be able to do one
or more of the following:
* develop object-oriented applications and
store objects in a relational database
* easily access legacy data and existing
applications from your new system
* support a large number of end-users who will
be simultaneously accessing information
* store large amounts of complex information

The following are examples of applications well-
suited for Odapter:
* a customer billing application written in
Smalltalk combining data stored in DB2 with new
objects. (Telecommunications)
* a network management application written in C
using Odapter as the object manager, able to scale
to millions of objects (Manufacturing)
* a complex Oil and Gas industry standard model
automatically generated from an Express analysis
and design tool.
(Oil & Gas)
* a medical application using Odapter to
combine heterogeneous components of patient
records. (Healthcare)

Odapter provides authorized access to sharable
objects, including existing data and business
processes. By bringing object-oriented capabilities
to heterogeneous systems environments, Odapter
delivers increased functionality while leveraging
the stability of existing RDBMSs and legacy
information.
