Comparing ORN to Similar Declarative Schemes

Part of the Advances in Database Systems book series (ADBS, volume 39)

In this chapter we compare ORN to other declarative schemes for describing association semantics. We examine schemes that have been proposed by others and ones that have been generally adopted in current DBMSs. We also examine property schemes that have been proposed for whole-part, i.e., “is a part of” type, relationships. Our purpose is to better assess the relative simplicity, power, consistency, and uniqueness of ORN and its scope.
