Title: COOL: A COMPOSITE OBJECT ORIENTED LANGUAGE FOR OBJECT-ORIENTED RELATIONAL DATA BASES
Authors: Bradley, James
Keywords: Computer Science
Issue Date: 1-Mar-1993
Abstract: COOL is a composite object-oriented declarative data base language for use with relational data bases. COOL uses a construct called a genitive relation to enable unambiguous specification and quantification, both conventional and natural, of relationships. A genitive relation is used in a manner corresponding to the genitive case with noun objects in natural language. Instead of formal genitive relation name syntax, a genitive case alias can be used to promote ease of expression construction. COOL expressions are similar in construct to the equivalent natural language expressions. COOL can manipulate independent entity structures, both hierarchical and network, and generalization or IS-A type hierarchies. COOL is proposed as an extension to SQL, for use where a relational data base has a distinct object-orientation.
