Issues in the Development of a Persistent Object-Oriented Programming System

This report is not available in electronic form!

We discuss design issues related to the development of a persistent programming system intended for use in the development of various applications such as geographic databases or CAD tools. The common characteristic of these applications is the desire to retain large amounts of complex data reliably across application invocations. Object-oriented methodology is used because it provides a good basis for the development of both data manipulation and data definition facilities. As well as discussing the methodology of our approach, implementation issues related to data persistence are presented.
