Abstract

This paper describes an object-oriented database approach for a direct access and memory management system which covers the needs of storing compound resp. multimedia documents in a multi-user and distributed environment. Document components may be distributed over several physical locations, documents may share components, and multi-user access is supported. In addition, the model allows to represent much of the document semantics, giving the opportunity to define and access components favourably through their properties. Rapid access and manipulation (using for example, associative methods) as well as encapsulation of data to minimize side effects are also considered.
