Object-Oriented Databases

 

Overview

Database is one of the most vitally important areas for enterprise and web applications. We have worked on indexing techniques for nested query processing in object-oriented database systems (OODBSs). We have proposed two new signature file schemes (called tree signature and path signature) for nested object query processing [ICSC'92]. By observing the connections between objects through object identifiers are essential to the efficiency of query processing, we introduce the concept of path dictionary and developed associated algorithms to supports different types of queries [CIKM'94]. Finally, we combines indexing and signature techniques with the path dictionary to create two classes of path-dictionary-based indexing organizations [DASFAA'95, IPCCC'96, TKDE'98]. These techniques significantly improve the efficiency of retrieval and update operations in OODBSs with a small storage overhead. Moreover, they can be applied not only to OODBSs but also Relational, Object-Relational Database Systems, and now XML-based Data Repositories.
