Abstract

Many object-oriented software developers are faced with the dilemma of utilizing a relational database for their persistent data store. The phrase “impedance mismatch” is often used to characterize the difficulties in sharing data between the relational and object-oriented models. By harnessing the power of modern Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMS), an easy-to-implement, easy-to-use, persistent storage solution for Java that does not compromise the data integrity of either model will be illustrated. The technologies used in this paper are Java and Oracle.
