Object Databases

Object Databases is used to represent information in the form of objects just as in object-oriented programming. This database management system is different from relational databases that are table-oriented. Organizations nowadays use new applications in different fields such as telecommunications, engineering design, and geographic systems, and a large amount of complex data being handled made it necessary that applications that can handle these data are adopted. Hence, the need for object databases. In an object database, object-oriented programming capabilities are combined with database capabilities. Object databases that are based on persistent programming now have a niche in areas like spatial engineering databases, scientific areas like molecular biology, packaged software, embedded use in devices, real-time systems, and telecommunications. Some common features of an object database include ACID transactions, database caching, transparent persistence, query language, and recovery. There are many benefits to be gotten from using object databases. Object databases help organizations handle complex data more quickly than relational databases. They are also reliable because of the ACID transactions support, and they offer higher performance because of the transparent persistence. Coding is also more efficient, as they require less code than the relational databases.
