Summary:
This thesis, based on (ISO/ANSI) X3H2-93-091 Working Draft Database Language SQL (SQL3) (Melton, 1993, 1994), systematically specifies the characteristics and manipulation of object-oriented techniques in SQL3. An essential difference between SQL3 and the previous SQL standards lies in the fact that the abstract data type (ADT) facility supported in SQL3 causes SQL3 to become an extended relational data model rather than a "pure" relational data model. This master's thesis focuses on the careful examination and explication of ADTs and the corresponding families--type templates as they are used in SQL3. These topics involve four aspects: (1) general concepts and technologies in object-oriented data models, (2) the definition of ADTs and their advantages, (3) the manipulation of ADTs in SQL3, including type templates (e.g., distinct types, explicit ADTs, user-defined type templates, standard type templates) and collection types, (4) "tables of ADTs" (row types with table), and (5) conclusions and challenges.
